Glee, Breaking Bad, and Parenthood
Shirley R. Steinberg, General Editor
The Critical Qualitative Research series examines societal structures that oppress and exclude so that transformative actions can be generated. This transformed research is activist in orientation. Because the perspective accepts the notion that nothing is apoliti-cal, research projects themselves are critically examined for power orientations, even as they are used to address curricular, educational, or societal issues.
This methodological work challenges modernist orientations and universalist imposi-tions, asking critical questions like: Who/what is heard? Who/what is silenced? Who is privileged? Who is disqualified? How are forms of inclusion and exclusion being created? How are power relations constructed and managed? How do different forms of privi-lege and oppression intersect to affect educational, societal, and life possibilities for various individuals and groups?
We are particularly interested in manuscripts that offer critical examinations of curricu-lum, policy, public communities, and the ways in which language, discourse practices, and power relations prevent more just transformations.
