Examining the Racialization of Positionality in Research Endeavors

March 11, 2021
3-4 p.m.
Register

Guest OSU Alum: Guest Alum: Dr. Mark Gooden Teachers College Columbia University. Event part of the QualLab Unapologetic Educational Research series. The process of conducting research often privileges thinking that stems from post-positivist and quantitative approaches which influence our beliefs, assumptions, and “successes”, even if we engage in constructionist and qualitative research. Researchers frequently sidestep or minimize the meaning of doing research in a white-dominated world that still constrains deeper explorations of race. Thus, the impact of race and racialization is further “neutralized”. Expanding on (Powell, 2012), I define racialization as a set of beliefs, mental constructions, practices, cultural norms that support institutional arrangements that both reflect and help to create knowledge by maintaining race-based conclusions in research.

Hosted by the Michael V. Drake Institute for Teaching and Learning.

Knowing Better to Do Better! Unapologetically Using Critical Perspectives to Inform Research and Practice

February 4, 2021
3-4 p.m.
Register

Guest OSU Alum: Dr. Joy Gaston Gayles NC State University. Event part of the QualLab Unapologetic Educational Research series. It’s no secret that racism and systemic bias are interwoven into the fabric of American society. If not careful, we as researchers and policymakers can become passive participants in producing research findings, policies, and practices that sustain these inequitable systems and oppressive structures over time. Critical theories and perspectives give researchers tools to “see” what is often unseen, dismissed, and harmful to all of us. This talk will highlight some of the dangers in educational research that perpetuate inequities in education and society and work against anti-racism ideology and initiatives. The talk will conclude by challenging us to take risks (unapologetically) to disrupt the status quo to inform better research, policies, and practices that are more equitable and just.
