Researching Resistance: Public Education After Neoliberalism serves two vital functions. First, it explores, explicates, and encourages critical qualitative research that engages the arts and born-digital scholarship. Second, it offers options for understanding neoliberalism, revealing its impact on communities, and resisting it as ideology, practice, and law. The book delves into

• strategies for engaging neoliberalism
• the Black feminist cyborg theoretical assumptions and intentions of the ethnographic web-based film project
• the research and arts-based methodology that walks the fault line between film and ethnography, and
• the relationships between the researcher, the activist organizations, and the activism.

While the book will focus on neoliberalism within the realm of public education, the implications extend to many other areas of public life.

This is an excellent text for classes in qualitative research and public policy. It is the companion text to the digital native ethnographic film project entitled Public Education|Participatory Democracy: After Neoliberalism. 

Perfect for courses such as: Qualitative Research, Curriculum Studies, Women and Gender Studies, Race and Ethnic Studies, Sociology of Education, Social Justice and Education, Democracy and Civics, Community Engagement, Policy Studies, Service Learning, Education Reform, and Youth Advocacy.

"Researching Resistance is a narrative of reinvention--both Dr. Huckaby's own and a model for societal reinvention--on multiple levels. It lays out a pathway of possible reinvention for ourselves as an education community and for society as a whole. And, believe me--Dr. Huckaby is unflinching. There is a lot in the book, both in history and in the present and future, that is really painful, and these realities are confronted unflinchingly. It is also grounded, intellectual, innovative, compassionate, joyful, pedagogic, brave, and inspiring. I sense Dr. Huckaby's joy in this work and her joy from participants as well. These are painful, hard things she is writing about. And yet there is joy here."

Isabel Nuñez, Purdue University Fort Wayne

"It's a particularly delicious thing--to pick up something you have an idea what it might be only to find out your're totallly wrong, and enjoy it even more. Dr. Huckaby has pulled off something. She has worked over the ideas with such skill and put them together with media in ways that not just clever or cool, but actually helps us understand. She shows us and talks to us. Her voice is a singular voice of 'I', a narrative without ever feeling like it's about her. I have no idea how she writes like this."

Walter Gershon, Kent State

"Dr. Huckaby suggests that neoliberalism is a static noise of our contemporary lives. So I would suggest this book offers us a series of tools with and through which to lean in and to hear better; to hear through the static and make sense of these sounds. It took me a little while to realize what a tour de force the book was. It's a big deal. This book offers history, theory, field research method, personal narrative of this interlocutor and these woven and tangled threads guiding us through. Dr. Huckaby is both witness and participant in cahoots with the world, bringing into dialogue multiple texts, voices, chronicles, conversations, and media."

Arlo Kempf, University of Ontario

M. Francyne Huckaby

M. Francyne Huckaby is Associate Professor of Curriculum Studies, Director of the Center for Public Education, and core faculty of Women and Gender Studies, Africana and African American Studies, and Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies at Texas Christian University. She works to create openings and spaces for antioppressive discourses and practices, and is most interested in experiences and pedagogical sites where divergent worldviews coexist. These, she argues, are sites of power relations that are educational and political. Her scholarship on community organizing and resistance to neoliberal education reform puts filmmaking to work as a form of inquiry and making public—publicaré—research and sites of resistance and struggle, scalar.usc.edu/works/publiceducation/index. 2017. Her work appears in International Review of Qualitative Research, Qualitative Inquiry, International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education, Educational Philosophy and Theory, The Journal of Curriculum Theorizing, Womanish Ways: Renderings at the Intersection of Race, Gender and Curriculum Theorizing, Handbook of Public Pedagogy, and Duoethnography: Dialogic Methods for Social, Health, and Educational Research. She received the 2016-17 Claudia V. Camp Faculty Research and Creative Activity Award from TCU’s Women and Gender Studies Program for becoming cyborg: A Black feminist, the Living Camera, Participatory Democracy and Their Weaving. Her honors include the TCU Deans’ Teaching Award for the College of Education, TCU Mortar Board Preferred Professor, and Straight for Equality from Fort Worth’s PFLAG chapter, as well as Outstanding Dissertation (2007 AERA, Qualitative Research SIG) for Challenging the Hegemony in Education: Specific Parrhesiastic Scholars, Care of the Self, and Relations of Power. She loves to travel and returned to Papua New Guinea, a few years ago, where she and her spouse lived and worked with six South Foré villages as a Peace Corps volunteer in the late 1990s.
