Book Description

Power; Race; and Higher Education; (PDF) is a corresponding narrative written by two academics. Kakali Bhattacharya; who is a South Asian woman who settled in the United States to pursue her graduate degrees and finally became an academic. Kent Gillen is a White man who emphasizes on completing his doctoral studies under Kakali’s direction. Kent reaches a crossroad where he has to question his sociocultural position; how he gains from a White supremacist system; even if he did not request any of the advantages or had his personal plights. Embedded in the predicaments are implications for cross-cultural qualitative research; understanding of how whiteness works; and how we pay attention to our deepest wounds as we work to become partners and build bridges.

This ebook can be used in undergraduate and graduate courses in culture and race studies in the qualitative methods courses;  social sciences and humanities; and graduate classes that help students with writing up qualitative research. Individual professors and graduate students who advise graduate students may benefit from this textbook.


Told in straightforward and honest language; this engaging ebook has much to say about scholarly responsibility; White privilege; and our essential reconciliation toward equity and a deep awareness of self.” — Johnny Saldaña; Professor Emeritus; Arizona State University
