Interrogating Racism in Qualitative Research Methodology


Gerardo R. López and Laurence Parker

The areas of race, class, and gender have generated increasing attention within the academy, providing a strong critique of the supposed neutrality of the research process. Interrogating Racism in Qualitative Research Methodology presents qualitative studies and essay reviews that connect these emerging theories to research and practice in the public schools as well as in institutions of higher education. Each chapter explores an emerging area of legal scholarship known as critical race theory and adopts a penetrating perspective that recognizes the normality and invisibility of racism in all aspects of society. This book explores the links between critical race theory and qualitative research methodology, and it interrogates how race connects and conflicts with other areas of difference and is never entirely absent from the research process.
