Abstract

Matters of race, racism and racialization has been part of the Danish education research history, yet fluctuating across time from being all-encompassing affective matter to vanishing from research and public debates. Reading Danish knowledge archive on antiracist education, the article traces back affective investments and moods that followed the knowledge production on antiracist education since 1970s. The article shows how discourse of tolerance most prominent in the 1980’ and 90’ gave life to a pedagogy of ‘creating good atmospheres’ and ‘happy diversity’ and how from late 1990s onwards the feelings of unease and uncomfortability came to be part of antiracist education research and practice. Lastly, the article suggests that research and practice around antiracist education may analytically be looked for ‘in the air’ and ‘between the lines’ and conceptualized as mood work.
