Describing Diverse Dreams of Justice in Education
1st Edition
By Eve Tuck, K. Wayne Yang
Published February 12, 2018 by Routledge

Toward What Justice? brings together compelling ideas from a wide range of intellectual traditions in education to discuss corresponding and sometimes competing definitions of justice. Leading scholars articulate new ideas and challenge entrenched views of what justice means when considered from the perspectives of diverse communities. Their chapters, written boldly and pressing directly into the difficult and even strained questions of justice, reflect on the contingencies and incongruencies at work when considering what justice wants and requires. At its heart, Toward What Justice? is a book about justice projects, and the incommensurable investments that social justice projects can make.

Counternarratives of Critical Practice
1st Edition
By Bree Picower, Rita Kohli
Published April 5, 2017 by Routledge

Drawing on case studies and personal narrative, this volume brings together the experiences and challenges faced by a diverse group of teacher educators in their efforts towards racial justice in teacher education. Picower and Kohli reject the notion of teacher educators as a homogenous group, offering instead a deeper analysis of the ways in which they approach racial justice work while navigating their own intersectional identities. Each chapter offers a narrative account revealing how a teacher educator’s unique positionality has shaped their racial justice pedagogy. Collectively, the authors unpack teacher racial identities and offer strategies for anti-racist teacher education.

Critical Investigations into Race-Related Supreme Court Disputes
1st Edition
By Hoang Vu Tran
Published July 10, 2019 by Routledge

In tracing the decline of Jim Crow racism to the rise of laissez-faire racism, Bobo and Smith argue that the economic basis for Jim Crow had eroded, therefore racial attitudes changed with the structural conditions of group life. Legal scholars Jack Balkin and Reva Siegel suggest the standard story of the Court’s jurisprudence in the latter half of the 20th century is that the views of Owen Fiss and other anti-subordination proponents were soundly rejected by the Court in favor of an anti-classification principle. Within the context of constitutional review and jurisprudence, it appears that Justice Harlan’s famous dissenting proclamation in Plessy v. Ferguson that ‘constitution is colorblind’ has been the ideological vision championed by conservative justices in order to methodologically prohibit race-based quota set-asides, and more generally speaking, affirmative action policies in and beyond the institution of education.
