Reflexive Sociology as Public Scholarship: Research to Inform Policy That Addresses Inequality

Sat, April 9, 10:35am to 12:05pm, Convention Center, Floor: Level Two, Room 201

Session Type: Invited Speaker Session


This session provides a framework to understand macro-level structures in which we are all embedded and through which we make sense of the world, and particularly issues of race and poverty. Scholars who engage in this form of sociological reflexivity will demonstrate how critical and timely this framework is for research on educational inequality and the mechanisms for how it is reproduced. Panelists will demonstrate, through the use of media, examples of the 'common sense' in education policy today and consider how it relates to these different explanations of inequality
