Book Summary:

As students navigate learning and begin to establish a sense of self, local surroundings can have a major influence on the range of choices they make about who they are and who they want to be. This book investigates how various constructions of identity can influence educational achievement for African American students, both within and outside school. Unique in its attention to the challenges that social and educational stratification pose, as well as to the opportunities that extracurricular activities can offer for African American students' access to learning, this book brings a deeper understanding of the local and fluid aspects of academic, racial, and ethnic identities. Exploring agency, personal sense-making, and social processes, this book contributes a strong new voice to the growing conversation on the relationship between identity and achievement for African American youth.

Book Summary:

*Winner of the 2019 AAAL First Book Award* Racialized Identities in Second Language Learning: Speaking Blackness in Brazil provides a critical overview and original sociolinguistic analysis of the African American experience in second language learning. More broadly, this book introduces the idea of second language learning as "transformative socialization": how learners, instructors, and their communities shape new communicative selves as they collaboratively construct and negotiate race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and social class identities. Uju Anya’s study follows African American college students learning Portuguese in Afro-Brazilian communities, and their journeys in learning to do and speak blackness in Brazil. Video-recorded interactions, student journals, interviews, and writing assignments show how multiple intersecting identities are enacted and challenged in second language learning. Thematic, critical, and conversation analyses describe ways black Americans learn to speak their material, ideological, and symbolic selves in Portuguese and how linguistic action reproduces or resists power and inequity. The book addresses key questions on how learners can authentically and effectively participate in classrooms and target language communities to show that black students' racialized identities and investments in these communities greatly influence their success in second language learning and how successful others perceive them to be.

Book Summary:

In the heated debates over identity politics, few theorists have looked carefully at the conceptualizations of identity assumed by all sides. Visible Identities fills this gap. Drawing on both philosophical sources as well as theories and empirical studies in the social sciences, Mart?n Alcoff makes a strong case that identities are not like special interests, nor are they doomed to oppositional politics, nor do they inevitably lead to conformism, essentialism, or reductive approaches to judging others. Identities are historical formations and their political implications are open to interpretation. But identities such as race and gender also have a powerful visual and material aspect that eliminativists and social constructionists often underestimate. Visible Identities offers a careful analysis of the political and philosophical worries about identity and argues that these worries are neither supported by the empirical data nor grounded in realistic understandings of what identities are. Mart?n Alcoff develops a more realistic characterization of identity in general through combining phenomenological approaches to embodiment with hermeneutic concepts of the interpretive horizon. Besides addressing the general contours of social identity, Mart?n Alcoff develops an account of the material infrastructure of gendered identity, compares and contrasts gender identities with racialized ones, and explores the experiential aspects of racial subjectivity for both whites and non-whites. In several chapters she looks specifically at Latino identity as well, including its relationship to concepts of race, the specific forms of anti-Latino racism, and the politics of mestizo or hybrid identity.

Book Summary:

A gift from the Creator, that is where it all began. In the Haudenosaunee worldview, the game of lacrosse is believed to be a gift from the Creator and it has been a central element of Aboriginal cultures and traditional worldviews in North America for centuries. However, the sport of lacrosse has undergone a considerable amount of change since the introduction of non-Aboriginal players in the 1840s. This dissertation, "The Creator's Game," focuses on the history of lacrosse in Aboriginal communities from 1844-1990 to better understand Native-Newcomer history and Aboriginal identity formation. Using lacrosse as a lens to view the concept and construction of "racialized identities," this dissertation identifies how the construction, maintenance, and persistence of imposed and self-imposed concepts of cultural identities fundamentally informed Aboriginal experiences within the sport of lacrosse and Native-Newcomer relations. That is, this dissertation examines the process in which identity is created- the method by which Aboriginal peoples constructed their shared histories and imagined how they belonged within a larger group (i.e. community, nation, confederacy). Through a case study approach, "The Creator's Game" is methodologically an ethnohistory (combining documentary and oral records) of lacrosse. Hence, the dominant source base for this project is oral interviews, community-produced texts, and draws from a number of works focusing on Aboriginal worldviews. Beginning with a brief history of lacrosse before 1867, the dissertation is made up of five chapters, each with a particular case study spanning Canada. In addition, each individual chapter introduction is narrated by the Trickster Figure in the attempt to move towards an interpretative framework that better reflects Aboriginal epistemologies. What makes the game of lacrosse such an intriguing case study of Canadian Native-Newcomer relations is that Canadians appropriated the Indigenous game as their own and manifested it as an expression of their national identity while it continued to be an integral part of Aboriginal societies, culture, and epistemologies-including their gender relations and spirituality. The story of lacrosse serves as a potent illustration of how identity is formed, reformed, and claimed and how at times competing interest groups attempt to claim a source of identity as their own.

Book Summary:

This book examines the ways in which mixed ethnic identities in Scandinavia are formed along both cultural and embodied lines, arguing that while the official discourses in the region refer to a "post-racial" or "color blind" era, color still matters in the lives of people of mixed ethnic descent. Drawing on research from people of mixed ethnic backgrounds, the author offers insights into how color matters and is made to matter and into the ways in which terms such as "ethnic" and "ethnicity" remain very much indebted to their older, racialized grammar. Color that Matters moves beyond the conventional Anglo-American focus of scholarship in this field, showing that while similarities exist between the racial and ethnic discourses of the US and UK and those found in the Nordic region, Scandinavia, and Norway in particular, manifests important differences, in part owing to a tendency to view itself as exceptional or outside the colonial heritage of race and imperialism. Presenting both a contextualization of racial discourses since World War II based on documentary analysis and new interview material with people of mixed ethnic backgrounds, the book acts as a corrective to the blind spot within Scandinavian research on ethnic minorities, offering a new reading of race for the Nordic region that engages with the idea that color has been emptied of legitimate cultural content.

Book Summary:

In the American world, the presence of African culture is sometimes fully embodied and sometimes leaves only a trace. Africa in the American Imagination: Popular Culture, Racialized Identities, and African Visual Culture explores this presence, examining Mattel’s world of Barbie, the 1996 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, and Disney World, each of which repackages African visual culture for consumers. Because these cultural icons permeate American life, they represent the broader U.S. culture and its relationship to African culture. This study integrates approaches from art history and visual culture studies with those from culture, race, and popular culture studies to analyze this interchange. Two major threads weave throughout. One analyzes how the presentation of African visual culture in these popular culture forms conceptualizes Africa for the American public. The other investigates the way the uses of African visual culture focuses America’s own self-awareness, particularly around black and white racialized identities. In exploring the multiple meanings that “Africa” has in American popular culture, Africa in the American Imagination argues that these cultural products embody multiple perspectives and speak to various sociopolitical contexts: the Cold War, Civil Rights, and contemporary eras of the United States; the apartheid and postapartheid eras of South Africa; the colonial and postcolonial eras of Ghana; and the European era of African colonization.

Book Summary:

Racialized Correctional Governance examines problems in the relationship between criminology and racialized issues. It questions current models for discussing issues of race in criminal justice systems and asks why a comprehensive theory of race and criminal justice has yet to develop in the discipline. It takes into account the full nature of problems facing racialized peoples in criminal justice systems, the developments and tensions in criminological theory and practice, as well as the scope of racialized criminal justice issues and where they occur. Suggesting that current explanations for the over-representation of racialized peoples in the criminal justice system are inadequate, the book explores the mutual constructions of race and criminal justice. It examines the shortcomings of current discourse, giving an account of how race, criminal justice and criminology are interrelated. Aiming to provide criminology with tools to engage with issues of race and criminal justice, the book develops and applies a set of rules to a series of case studies and proposes ideas for transforming institutional practice.

Book Summary:

The concept and construct of race is often implicitly yet profoundly connected to issues of culture and identity. Meeting an urgent need for empirical and conceptual research that specifically explores critical issues of race, culture, and identities in second language education, the key questions addressed in this groundbreaking volume are these: How are issues of race relevant to second language education? How does whiteness influence students’ and teachers’ sense of self and instructional practices? How do discourses of racialization influence the construction of student identities and subjectivities? How do discourses on race, such as colorblindness, influence classroom practices, educational interventions, and parental involvement? How can teachers transform the status quo? Each chapter is grounded in theory and provides implications for engaged practice. Topics cover a wide range of themes that emerge from various pedagogical contexts. Authors from diverse racial/ethnic/cultural backgrounds and geopolitical locations include both established and beginning scholars in the field, making the content vibrant and stimulating. Pre-reading Questions and Discussion Questions in each chapter facilitate comprehension and encourage dialogue.

Book Summary:

There has been a nationwide call to increase diversity in the teaching profession, and though schools are looking to recruit more teachers of color, many continue to leave the profession at a higher rate than their White colleagues. Understanding their reasons for this seems to require an understanding of their interpretation of the systems and structures in which they work as well as how their identities may or may not align with those systems and structures that have been in place since they were students themselves. This dissertation uses a situative and critical race lens to understand several things: (1) how teachers of colors' racialized histories and experiences may influence their perceptions of their roles and practices, (2) how they navigate and access resources and opportunities to learn that may be aligned with their racialized identities, and (3) how they navigate their racialized identities within their schools in their first year of teaching. In using Nasir's (2012) conceptualizations of racialized identities, I use semi-structured interviews, a focus group interview, school staff interviews, and observations to understand the complex and multidimensional ways in which four teachers of color navigate the tensions, affordances, and constraints within their schools and how they positioned themselves as racialized beings in those spaces. The findings highlight the nuanced ways in which the teachers' negotiation of their racialized identities could not be untethered from their shifting contexts. The findings also reveal the extent to which the teachers navigate and perceive their alignment to the resources available to them in their schools. In having a deeper understanding of the processes by which teachers of color bring their racialized identities into the profession, I hope to bring to the forefront the critical considerations for teacher education programs, administrators, and educational leaders when it comes to a system that honors the rich identities and stories that teachers of color offer the profession.

Book Summary:

The presence and experiences of Black people at elite universities have been largely underrepresented and erased from institutional histories. This book engages with a collection of these experiences that span half a century and reflect differences in class, gender, and national identifications among Black scholars. By mapping Black people’s experiences of studying and teaching at McGill University, this book reveals how the "whiteness" of the university both includes and exceeds the racial identities of students and professors. It highlights the specific functions of Blackness and of anti-Blackness within society in general and within the institution of higher education in particular, demonstrating how structures and practices of the university reproduce interlocking systems of oppression that uphold racial capitalism, reproduce colonial relations, and promote settler nationalism. Critically engaging the work of Black learners, academics, organizers, and activists within this dynamic political context, this book underscores the importance of Black Studies across North America.

Book Summary:

How do people produce and reproduce identities? In How Americans Make Race, Clarissa Rile Hayward challenges what is sometimes called the 'narrative identity thesis': the idea that people produce and reproduce identities as stories. Identities have greater staying power than one would expect them to have if they were purely and simply narrative constructions, she argues, because people institutionalize identity-stories, building them into laws, rules, and other institutions that give social actors incentives to perform their identities well, and because they objectify identity-stories, building them into material forms that actors experience with their bodies. Drawing on in-depth historical analyses of the development of racialized identities and spaces in the twentieth-century United States, and also on life-narratives collected from people who live in racialized urban and suburban spaces, Hayward shows how the institutionalization and objectification of racial identity-stories enables their practical reproduction, lending them resilience in the face of challenge and critique.

Book Summary:

Conceived as the meanings that individuals attach to their selves, a substantial stockpile of theory related to identities accumulated across the arts, social sciences, and humanities over many decades continues to nourish contemporary research on self-identities in organizations. In times which are more reflexive, narcissistic, and fluid, the identities of participants in organizations are increasingly less fixed and less certain, making identity issues both more salient and more interesting. Particular attention has been given to processes of identity construction, often styled 'identity work'. Research has focused on how, why, and when such processes occur, and their implications for organizing and individual, group, and organizational outcomes. This has resulted in a burgeoning stream of research from discursive, dramaturgical, symbolic, socio-cognitive, and psychodynamic perspectives that most often casts individuals' efforts to fabricate identities as intentional, relational, and consequential. Seemingly intractable debates centred on the nature of identities - their relative stability or fluidity, whether they are best regarded as coherent or fractured, positive (or not), and how they are fabricated within relations of power - combined with other conceptual issues continue to invigorate the field. However, these debates have also led to some scepticism regarding the future potential of identities research. Yet as the chapters in this Handbook demonstrate, there are considerable grounds for optimism that identity, as root metaphor, nexus concept, and means to bridge levels of analysis has significant potential to generate multiple compelling streams of theorizing in organization and management studies.

Book Summary:

Prior studies on personal advertisements have focused on the ways that gender is enacted in heterosexual-themed personal ads. Much less research has been done on the ways that race and sexual orientation are overtly and covertly referred to in personal ads. For example, race is rarely mentioned in previous work on personal ads, despite the fact that most personal ads begin with a race indicator. The overall inattention to race in personal ad research is a significant omission because racial politics in the United States have always influenced the way people approach romantic/sexual relationships. This can be seen especially in social norms that stress homogamy, which in turn perpetuates the racial stratification system in U.S. society. Discourse surrounding sexuality and/or romance is permeated with racial ideology and imagery, and minorities are positioned as 3the other4 which makes their sexuality simultaneously invisible, hypervisible, and pathologized. Meanwhile, recent scholarship in the area of whiteness studies has noted how the meaning of whiteness is often unexamined. The sexual politics of race (or the racial politics of sex) are even more complex when considering the issues brought forth by the increasingly visible presence of relationships that fall outside of the heterosexual monogamous tradition held as the standard in the United Sates. Personal ads from the Village Voice, Cincinnati Enquirer, and Chicago Defender were used to examine the ways the ads themselves have been changing in the period after the immense social change of the late 19602s, from 1974-2002. This examination of personal advertisements illustrates the taken-for-granted importance of race in the construction of romantic relationships. Ad placers work within dominant systems of meanings and structures imposed by the newspapers to articulate identities and relationship desires in ways that make race and gender central. Some ad placers challenge the dominant social norms, while others support it. Personal ads are simultaneously a site where gender boundaries are sometimes blurred, racial boundaries are often maintained through an emphasis on homogamous relationships, and where ad placers invoke (or position themselves against) racial stereotypes.

Book Summary:

Identities and Interests offers an entirely new perspective on the role of racial and ethnic identities in Canadian elections. Using a series of experiments, as well as candidate and census data, Randy Besco demonstrates that self-identification matters far more than self-interest, ideology, or policy. The largest minority groups – Chinese and South Asian Canadians – tend to support candidates of their own ethnicity. Yet inter-minority affinity voting also reveals the potential for “rainbow coalitions” and how minorities themselves think in terms of a white/non-white divide. Besco’s innovative work has major implications for social movements, issue opinions, fundraising, and political leadership races.
