Change Matters

Critical Essays on Moving Social Justice Research from Theory to Policy

sj Miller and David Kirkland

Change Matters, written by leading scholars committed to social justice in English education, provides researchers, university instructors, and preservice and inservice teachers with a framework that pivots social justice toward policy. The chapters in this volume detail rationales about generating social justice theory in what Freire calls «the revolutionary process» through essays that support research about teaching about the intersections between teaching for social change and teaching about social injustices, and directs us toward the significance of enacting social justice methodologies. The text unpacks how education, spiritual beliefs, ethnicity, age, gender, ability, social class, political beliefs, marital status, sexual orientation, gender expression, language, national origin, and education intersect with the principles by which we live and the multiple identities that we embody as we move from space to space. This book is critical reading for anyone who strives to cease inequitable schooling practices by conducting research in education to inform more just policies.

Growing Latinx student populations have led to concerns about “assimilating” them into mainstream academic frameworks.

, daughters inherit their mothers’ fears and dreams, and romantic love feels fleeting, if not impossible. Davis (2007) says “Black women’s collective experience is a cultural performance of survival and resistance” (p. 124), and these stories carry a performative impulse that reinforces what it looks like when women are constantly negotiating how to make a way out of no way, or a dollar out of fifteen cents. ← 139 | 140 → Reconceptualizing rural black women’s lived realities urges us to see rural black women’s stories as collective narratives of resilience and social
