Posted March 2013
Django Paris, Associate Director and Professor of Language and Literacy at Michigan State University, and Maisha T. Winn, Bread Loaf faculty member at North Carolina in 2012 and Susan J. Cellmer Chair of English Education in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, have published Humanizing Research: Decolonizing Qualitative Inquiry with Youth and Communities (2013, SAGE).
The book includes chapters from a collective of scholar-activists doing research within and across communities, including work with Indigenous American, African American, Latina/o, LGBTQ, and undocumented young people and their families. The editors' goal is to explore what it means to conduct research for justice with youth and communities who are marginalized by systems of inequality based on race, ethnicity, language, sexuality, citizenship status, gender, and other categories of difference.
