I’m interested in looking at research methodologies, particularly quantitative methodologies through non-white, non-european, non-dominant cultural, non-patriarchial lenses, so I’m in the process of collecting books that cover the topic. My intention is to use what I learn in my day-to-day work, and to bring these into the course I’m teaching Spring term – Quantitative Methodologies for our College of Education. Here’s a list of what I’ve got so far.
Note: Many of these books I have not had a chance to read yet, and right now I am focusing on chapters that address quantitative methodologies. I’m doing this because a) I love stats and b) quant methods are an area that have less coverage within the emancipatory, decolonization, critical frameworks. I have * books that I have read entirely or have read parts of.

Special thanks to Kim McAloney for inspiring me to take a much deeper look into this than I was, and for sending titles of books I need to own.
