Understanding Critical Race Theory as a Framework in Higher Educational Research
Savas, Gokhan
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v35 n4 p506-522 2014
This paper reviews the existing literature to discuss how critical race theory has been applied as a theoretical framework to higher educational research in the United States and what its contributions are. To provide necessary context, I will discuss race and racism in the United States, the background of US higher education in relation to race, the emergence of critical race theory and its application in US higher education.
