This volume by philosophers, sociologists, and historians on issues of race and racism examines central educational questions, contributing to ongoing discussions amongst educational theorists, philosophers, and practitioners.

Critical Race Theory and the Critical Philosophy of Race are now well established within North American academia – yet they are only recently beginning to make inroads in UK academia. The wide-ranging discussions in this collection explore conceptual, ethical, political, and epistemological aspects of race and racism in the context of discussions of pedagogy, curriculum, and education policy, across a range of educational settings. The questions and issues addressed include:

• why and how issues of race play out differently in different national and social contexts;

• the impact of the legacies of empire and colonialism on philosophy and education;

• the disciplinary boundaries and practices of academic philosophy;

• the philosophical canon;

• racial identities and their role in educational processes;

• diversity and difference in educational practices and curricula;

• whiteness and institutional racism; and

• the pedagogical issues raised by teaching young children about race and racism.

This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethics and Education.
