    Between knowing and not knowing: Exploring teachers’ conflictual desire to dismantle and to conceal racism in education2024Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Research topic

    With the aim of developing deracialization as a concept and practice, this paper will focus on what appears to be teachers’ conflictual desire to dismantle racism and at the same time concealing it. The gaps between teachers' aspirations to combat racism and the actions that inadvertently uphold racist power structures has been explored through action research. In recorded conversations some of the teachers seems to be in between knowing and not knowing about the presence of racism in their school and among the students. This examination of conflicting desires creates opportunities to raise awareness of and, strengthen resistance to, racist actions and structures.

    Theoretical framework

    Deracialization is an active disruption of racializing processes, ultimately aiming to eliminate the regulation of unequal social relations by notions of race (Stevens, 2014). The use of the concept deracialization in this paper should not be mistaken for the deemphasizing of Black racial identity (Johnson, 2017). Within relational psychoanalysis theory attention is paid to the tension between normative unconscious processes, when people reproduce different power hierarchies of race, class and sexuality, and conscious and unconscious ways of resisting these reproductions (Layton, 2020). The teachers' conflicting desire to dismantle and conceal racism can be viewed as part of a repetition compulsion, manifesting as struggles between normative unconscious processes and counter-normative processes (Layton, 2020).

    Methodology

    Employing an action research approach, I’m engaged in collaborations with two groups of secondary school teachers committed to improving their ability to combat racism in school. Working with the teachers' self-reports in dialogue, space is provided for teachers to reflect on their actions and understandings. This reflective process allows them to examine their categorizations and splits (Layton, 2020) (which may have been unconscious) and consider how they would like to change their actions as teachers. Transcriptions of the dialogues and teachers’ reflections will be thematically analyzed, focusing on the spaces between knowing and not knowing.

    Expected results

    This research aims to contribute to a more dynamic understanding of teachers' and schools' often conflicting desires in addressing racism. Developing the concept and practice of deracialization may lead to heightened awareness of the limitations of racializing power structures on human experiences and encourage explorations of interdependence among individuals while acknowledging our unique experiences.

    Relevance to Nordic educational research

    The theoretical framework of "deracialization" and relational psychoanalysis theory can provide a unique perspective on understanding and addressing racism in education. This contributes to ongoing efforts to create inclusive and diverse educational environments.
