    • Good afternoon, I would like to recommend that my newly-released book, Degrees of Difference: Women, Men, and the Value of Higher Education (2017, Routledge) be reviewed. I would consider it an honor to have it reviewed here. Here is the link to the publication page: https://www.routledge.com/Degrees-of-Difference-Women-Men-and-the-Value-of-Higher-Education/Niemi/p/book/9781138697430 In advance, thank you. Nancy Niemi
    • Ed Douglas McKnight, "Place, Race and Identity Formation: Autobiographical Intersections in a Curriculum Theorist's Daily Life." (2017). Routledge. https://www.routledge.com/Place-Race-and-Identity-Formation-Autobiographical-Intersections-in/McKnight/p/book/9781138782655. About the Book In this work of curriculum theory, Ed Douglas McKnight addresses and explores the intersections between place (with specific discussion of Kincheloe’s and Pinar’s conceptualization of place and identity) and race (specifically Winthrop Jordan’s historical analysis of race as an Anglo-European construction that became the foundation of a white mythos). To that end, he employs a form of narrative construction called curriculum vitae (course of life)—a method of locating and delineating identity formation which addresses how theories of place, race and identity formation play out in a particular concrete life. By working through how place racializes identity and existence, the author engages in a long Southern tradition of storytelling, but in a way that turns it inside out. Instead of telling his own story as a means to romanticize the sins of the southern past, he tells a new story of growing up within the "white" discourse of the Deep South in the 1960s and 70s, tracking how his racial identity was created and how it has followed him through life. Significant in this narrative is how the discourse of whiteness and place continues to express itself even within the subject position of a curriculum theorist teaching in a large Deep South university. The book concludes with an elaboration on the challenges of engaging in the necessary anti-racist complicated conversation within education to begin to work through and cope with heavy racialized inheritances. Table of Contents Introduction: A bricoleur’s search for a curriculum theory of race and place: conversār. Chapter 1: Symbolic narratives as told by ghosts and bones: Situating race, place, and a beginning story gone bad in the Deep South Chapter 2: A racialized history of my place, Shreveport, Louisiana: The Red River, the "land of churches," and the "lynching capital of the world" Chapter 3: Part 1: Critical autobiography of my racialization: The gift of a North Louisiana map and a story to live by Chapter 4: Part 2: Critical autobiography of my racialization: The bones begin to speak but the ghosts fight back Chapter 5: The trials and not-so-tribulations of a Deep South, white male curriculum theorist fumbling toward a complicated conversation with students: Being better than my ghosts

    • I'm writing because we have actually already written a book review of Delgado Bernal, D.; Burciaga, R.; & Flores Carmona, J. (2015) Chicana/Latina testimonios as pedagogical, methodological, and activist approaches to social justice. New York, NY: Routledge. ISBN: 978-1138962972 You can contact me at jcjupp@gmail.com if you would like to take a look. No pressure, but we think it is an important book to review. The review is overwhelmingly positive, and it also makes a comment on the field of testimonio research in education. James C.
