Vol. 3 No. 1 (2020): Beyond "Cultural Competency": Confronting Whiteness in Social Work
Our call for papers for this special issue commenced with two questions: Are you in interested in contributing to the current debates around the role of whiteness across the human services? Are you concerned about the deployment and function of surface-level notions such as “cultural competency”? Typically, “cultural competency” fixes the gaze towards “the Other”. This edition is an attempt to redirect the gaze to the “non-Other” (Patil & Ennis, 2018).
