2020 Outstanding Book Award Honorable Mention from Division B (Curriculum Studies) of the American Educational Research Association

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.

Reviews & Endorsements:

"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."

"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
