Locating Racial Microaggressions Within Critical Race Theory and an Inclusive Critical Discourse Analysis
An understanding of racial microaggression allows for greater awareness of the often subtle, barely discernible and barely detectable manifestations of racism that can emerge on college and university campuses, in classrooms and in everyday conversations and interactions between people of colour and White people. Microaggressions, as modes of interaction between members of historically marginalized communities and members of the dominant society, reveal how the ideology of racism is secreted in these interactions and reveal the ways in which power and privilege are taken for granted in everyday actions and interactions. Within the university environment, this can take many forms including interactions between students, faculty and students, faculty and faculty, and the classroom and university climate and environment.
