Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A] valid and necessary addition to the field. . . . Mixed sheds light on pre-college, as well as collegiate experiences, which may be influential in the identities and lives of multiracial students. Furthermore, the 12 essays in the book explore aspects of multiracial students' experiences
that have yet to be extensively researched, including the influences of familial dynamics, intersections of additional social identities, and the environments and communities in which one grows up. . . . The 12 essays are enchanting and informative, providing a much needed text for engaging multiraciality in higher education."―Jessica C. Harris, Journal of College Student Development (November 2014)



"With this collection, Andrew Garrod, Robert Kilkenny and Christina Gomez have done a significant service for anyone interested in an exploration of the complexity of issues facing multiracial persons. The 12 essays―six by women, six by men―written by students at Dartmouth College over the course of a 10-week academic terma provide an intimate first-person and appropriately diverse look at the multiple forces impacting the process of developing a multiracial identity. . . .this book's 12 essays provide important case material that can help promote the kind of thoughtful conversation necessary to move us forward as a diverse people."―Tim Hatfield, Journal of Moral Education (2014)



"Much of the most insightful work on multiracial identity and multiracial experience has been drawn from multiracial individuals themselves. In addition, the institution of higher education provides a context where identities are particularly under investigation and where the drama of race continues to play out. In Mixed, editors Andrew Garrod, Robert Kilkenny, and Christina Gómez have brought together both of these traditions to encourage the next wave of research on multiracial experiences and urge the deeper conversations about race that we desperately need."―David L. Brunsma, Virginia Tech, coauthor of Beyond Black: Biracial Identity in America
