Readings on Power, Privilege, and Resistance PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Readings on Power, Privilege, and Resistance free pdf Published in 1997, Off White brought a much-needed analysis of the white racialization process to the multicultural discussion, particularly within the field of education. While the collection is primarily focused on the field of education, contributors hailed from a range of disciplines, including psychology, sociology, anthropology, women's studies, and ethnic studies. The studies documented the characteristics of whiteness but also revealed the ways that whiteness demands and constitutes hierarchy, exclusion, and deprivation. For this new edition the editors have crafted a volume more deliberately focused on the material conditions of whiteness as a privilege, and the turns of whiteness produced when individuals and collectives take up a challenge to contemporary racial formations. They have also added a section that speaks to the theory of research methods for studying whiteness and racial formations - a particularly important addition for those in education and psychology programs. With a new introduction from the editors, nine entirely new pieces, and the best of the first edition fully updated, this new edition of Off White will continue to be a classic in the field.
