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 intostrategies for engaging neoliberalismthe Black feminist cyborg theoretical assumptions and intentions of the ethnographic web-based film projectthe research and arts-based methodology that walks the fault line between film and ethnography, andthe 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 extending 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.

"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."--Isabel Nunez, Purdue University Fort Wayne
"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
