This chapter assesses a range of orientations to public engagement and critical race scholarship. There is no one correct way to be an engaged scholar, and each form contains some merit as well as various problems. The purpose of the discussion is not to build models or frameworks; rather, it aims to do several other things: first, to make the case for critical and engaged scholarship on race that is sensitive to the times and places it occurs in, as well as being aware of recurring debates about the relation of the academy to publics. Second, the chapter argues that the academy itself needs to be situated; it cannot be treated as just a neutral or even a liberal place from which the practice of radical or critical scholarship occurs. Finally, it introduces the topic of public sociology.
