Race in the College Classroom free pdf Did affirmative action programs solve the problem of race on American college campuses, as several recent books would have us believe? If so, why does talking about race in anything more than a superficial way make so many students uncomfortable? Written by college instructors from many disciplines, this volume of essays takes a bold first step toward a nationwide conversation. Each of the twenty-nine contributors addresses one central question: what are the challenges facing a college professor who believes that teaching responsibly requires an honest and searching examination of race? Professors from the humanities, social sciences, sciences, and education consider topics such as how the classroom environment is structured by race- the temptation to retreat from challenging students when faced with possible reprisals in the form of complaints or negative evaluations- the implications of using standardized evaluations in faculty tenure and promotion when the course subject is intimately connected with race- and the varying ways in which white faculty and faculty of color are impacted by teaching about race.
