An examination of the influence of race and racism on the research experience

A white woman studies upper-class eighth grade girls at her alma mater on Long Island and finds a culture founded on misinformation about its own racial and class identity. A Black American researcher is repeatedly assumed by many Brazilian subjects to be a domestic servant or sex worker. Through encounters such as these, Racing Research, Researching Race explores how ideologies of race and racism intersect with nationality and gender to shape the research experience.

Critical work in race studies has not adequately addressed how racial positions in the field--as inflected by nationality, gender, and age--generate numerous methodological dilemmas. Racing Research, Researching Race works to fill this gap by infusing critical race studies with empirical work and suggesting how a critical race perspective might improve research methodologies and outcomes.

Featuring contributions from scholars working across anthropology, sociology, ethnic studies, women's studies, political science, and Asian American studies, this volume offers new perspectives anyone embarking on research in their field.
