Can Service Learning Reinforce Social and Cultural Bias? Exploring a Popular Model of Family Involvement for Early Childhood Teacher Candidates

However, five candidates appeared to avoid confronting their own biases. More research is needed to examine the relationship between candidates' understanding of social relationships and their approach to service learning experiences.

In thinking through an 'after-queer', the authors identify and seek to account for particular habits of thought that are often associated with queer research in education and queer research about young people.

The authors contend that these habits of thought require further interrogation because they are intrinsic to researchers' visions of their own research and to the constitution of fields of research in the broader research imagination.
