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.

Books by M. Francyne Huckaby:

This volume engages researchers with the notion of critical qualitative inquiry (CQI) as a direct practice of resistance. As female educators and researchers who have (through our politically activist sister) been referred to as “Nasty Women” in the US presidential debates, we believe that it is our responsibility to respond through our inquiry to the violent reinscription of intersecting forms of injustice and marginalization. The purposes of this volume are therefore (1) to demonstrate personal actions taken by researchers to deal with thoughts/feelings of despair as well as how to move toward survival, and (2) to explore historical, new, and rethought research and activist methodologies (frameworks) as counter measures broadly and for public education specifically. Examples of CQI as resistance in response to the particular neoliberal patriarchal, whitelash presidential election event are provided by featured authors. Additionally, resources related to activist scholarship are provided. These frameworks, resources, and perspectives are also useful for future research in reaction to neoliberalism, patriarchy, and white supremacy.

Researching Resistance
Public Education after Neoliberalism

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 (http://scalar.usc.edu/works/publiceducation/index).

Making Research Public in Troubled Times
Pedagogy, Activism, and Critical Obligations

These are certainly troubled times in which neoliberal capitalist patriarchy and the tyranny of racism and domination are continually reinscribed on the bodies and lives of so many. However, critical researchers understand the necessity for, as well as the difficulty of, using research to facilitate public transformations that lead to increased justice and equity. The authors contributing to Making Research Public in Troubled Times recognize the importance of diverse pedagogies, activism, and ethical choices regarding an environment that supports critical research in such oppressive times.

Diverse pedagogies that can facilitate the education of critical public researchers across disciplines are illustrated in the first set of chapters addressing questions like: What is important in teaching critical qualitative inquiry? How do students, materials, histories, and the public influence this teaching? What have we learned over years of attempting to teach critical qualitative research methods? The authors in the second section are activist local scholars sharing their projects and explaining what this work means for critical qualitative inquiry. This work includes methods used to incorporate critical qualitative inquiry into community activism. Finally, chapters in the last section focus on future steps and most important actions for the ways critical qualitative inquiry can be conceptualized to address concerns in these troubled times.
