New Perspectives on Racial Identity Development: Integrating Emerging Frameworks, Second Edition by Charmaine L. Wijeyesinghe

New Perspectives on Racial Identity Development brings together leaders in the field to deepen, broaden, and reassess our understandings of racial identity development. Contributors include the authors of some of the earliest theories in the field, such as William Cross, Bailey W. Jackson, Jean Kim, Rita Hardiman, and Charmaine L. Wijeyesinghe, who offer new analyses of the impact of emerging frameworks on how racial identity is viewed and understood. Other contributors present new paradigms and identify critical issues that must be considered as the field continues to evolve.

This new and completely rewritten second edition uses emerging research from related disciplines that offer innovative approaches that have yet to be fully discussed in the literature on racial identity. Intersectionality receives significant attention in the volume, as it calls for models of social identity to take a more holistic and integrated approach in describing the lived experience of individuals.

This volume offers new perspectives on how we understand and study racial identity in a culture where race and other identities are socially constructed and carry significant societal, political, and group meaning.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

The second edition of New Perspectives on Racial Identity is as groundbreaking as the first. A combination of continuing and new authors offer a diverse array of perspectives on cutting edge theories and models related to racial identity development. By both honoring foundational theories and models and providing new and innovative thinking, the editors provide readers with a contemporary and sophisticated treatment of racial identity development."-Susan R. Jones,The Ohio State University

"Takes a fresh look at racial identity development through the lens of intersectionality. In so doing this text furthers our understanding of the complicated and simultaneous experience of race as mutually constituted with other social identities. The authors are to be applauded for their willingness to interrogate and critique their own prior theoretical frameworks in order to explore new ground in this new edition. The result is a book that significantly advances the field of racial identity development and the theoretical and pedagogical practices that rely on it to help us better understand racial identity in all its richness and variability."-Lee Anne Bell,Barbara Silver Horowitz Director of Education, Barnard College, Columbia University
