The intent of Race, Racialization, and Antiracism in Canada and Beyond is to probe systemic forms of racism, as well as to suggest strategies for addressing them. The collection is organized by themes pertinent to political and social expressions of racism in Canada and the wider world, such as the state and its mediation of race, education and the perpetuation of racist marginalization, and the role of the media. The contributors argue that, in order to effectively combat racism, various methodological approaches are required, approaches that are reflective of the diversity of the world we seek to understand.
The book provides new coordinates for collective and global mobilization by troubling the politics of “decolonizing solidarity” as pointing to new ways for forging critical friends and political workers.
The book concludes by offering some important lessons for teaching and learning about Blackness and anti-Blackness confronting some contemporary issues of schooling and education in Euro-American contexts, and suggesting ways to foster dialogic and generative forums for such critical discussions.
In this book the authors explore the knowledge that constitutes anti-racism education and the ways in which knowledge constitutive of anti-racism education becomes embodied through particular pedagogues. The authors are anti-racism educators with experiences in diverse settings: the chapters cover various fields and socio-historic geographies, address contemporary educational issues, and are situated within personal-political, historical and philosophical conversations.
Anti-racism education is a discursive stance and steeped in politics that shape and are shaped by everyday conversations, theories, and practices. The essays in this collection work through many of the possibilities and limitations of engaging in counter-hegemonic education for transformative learning. Readers will discover lived experiences, theory, practice and critical reflexivity.

Education Feminism is a revised and updated
version of Lynda Stone’s out-of-print anthology, The Education Feminism
Reader. The text is intended as a course text and provides students a
foundational base in feminist theories in education. The classics section is
comprised of the readings that students have most responded to in classes. The
contemporary readings section demonstrates how the third-wave feminist criticism
of the 1990s has an impact on today’s feminist work. Both of these sections
address critical multicultural educational issues and have an inclusive, diverse
selection of feminist scholars who bring race, class, sexual orientation,
religious practices, and colonial/postcolonial perspectives to bear on their
work. The individual essays are concise and well written and arranged in such a
way that it is easy for instructors to assign them around themes of their own
“The incredible value of this fine collection is that it
demonstrates what it means to critically consider, interrogate, and challenge
historic and contemporary ideas regarding educational equity while using these
very ideas to imagine new possibilities. It will serve as an indispensable
resource in graduate classrooms where students can use the text to ground and
forward explorations of the necessarily complex considerations of equity in
education today.” — Adela C. Licona, coeditor of Feminist Pedagogy: Looking
Back to Move Forward
