Dr. Janis writes about the multi-race/multi-cultural/cross-cultural experience, critical race theory, curriculum in the U. S. South, educator narratives and education for social justice. She is currently using narratives that reveal the in-betweenness of her life as a multi-race person to problematize imbedded notions of race, gender, class, and power, which creates possibilities to capture the contradictions and paradoxes of behind the theory and practice of multicultural and multiracial education.
