Problematizing Whiteness: A Woman of Color and a White Woman Discuss Race and Research
AbstractIn this paper, we engage in reflexivity to explore our experiences with race and research. Employing critical race theory as a framework, we engage in a dialogue about the risks and benefits of White scholars exploring race in higher education research. Through this conversation, we attempt to problematize the use of CRT by White scholars and provide a framework for scholars to consider when engaging in research related to race. Further, we intend to model the difficult dialogues in which White women and women of Color must engage to support each other as scholars in higher education.
