This book examines actual classroom events of racial and gender discord. It employs the theoretical lenses of pragmatism, whitenes studies, critical race theory, and poststructuralism to offer an original analysis of how students come to embody their races and genders through schooling practices. Finally, it offers a pathway out of racism and sexism through the cultivation of flexible habits of identity.
Sarah M. Stitzlein is assistant professor of education at the University of New Hampshire.
