Abstract

To be presented at the American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting (Cancelled due to Covid-19)

Critical Race Theorists in education need a tool to investigate the ways in which educational discourse is imbued with and maintains racial oppression. The purpose of this presentation is to detail how Critical Race Hermeneutics (CRH) provides a systematic approach to and interrogation of the ethics of textual interpretation. After introducing Critical Race Theory and hermeneutics, this presentation details four CRH tenets: a radically historical contextualization, alignment with deconstruction, the embodiment of kinesis, and a display of radical hope through community building. We describe these tenets through our CRH-informed analyses of interviews from a study on the faculty who teach courses related to multicultural education. The presentation concludes by identifying areas for future development of CRH as an analytical framework.
