Research, Race, and Pedagogy

There's a lively interactive site for the UC Santa Barbara Race and Pedagogy Project that offers connections to very interesting research: http://rpp.english.ucsb.edu/
For example, Deborah Brandt has made a real impact on literacy studies. On this site, her study of race and literacy emerges from looking at over 80 case studies and thinking about the implications for rhetorical theory.

I want to add my praise of Deborah Brandt's work. It's a real contribution to literacy studies--and also an excellent read.
