Om Whiteness in Academia

Even in those areas of academia which one would consider to be most resistant to white domination (such as critical race theory and multicultural education), both covert and overt racial oppression are apparent. What is the role of white academics in these fields in creating racial oppression? Is there any escape from white supremacy and do white academics have any role in resisting it or are they always complicit?In this book, fictional tropes are used to consider the role of whiteness in academia and in wider struggles against racial oppression. The volume consists of several 'counter stories', each one of which critiques an aspect of whiteness and uses themes from genres such as science fiction, detective fiction and 'fan fiction' to explore power and the contradictions associated with it.Whiteness in Academia will be useful for those researching race, debating the role of academics in social change and examining research methods in education. Of particular interest to academics, researchers and activists, the volume provides a text which opens up new ways of thinking about both their positionality and politics.
