Pilkington, A., Housee, S. and Hylton, K., (eds.) (2009) Race(ing) Forward: Transitions in Theorising 'Race' in Education. Birmingham: Centre for Sociology, Anthropology and Politics (C-SAP), Higher Education Academy. 1902191390.
A central theme that C-SAP has been exploring in recent years is how ‘race’ and ethnicity are being taught in the social sciences. It has been keen to discover what challenges higher-education institutions face when they attempt to articulate the complex sets of issues around ‘race’ and, importantly, what learning, teaching and assessment innovations academics have developed to help them in the process. This publication is one outcome of that exploration. The book arose from a day conference at the University of Northampton on the implications of specific transitions of theorising ‘race’ in education run by C-SAP, notably those relating to the increasing attention paid to critical race theory and the mounting critiques aimed at multiculturalism
