This article develops a conceptualframework of research genres that illustrate the complex multidisciplinary roots of multicultural education. The primary objective is to provide educational researchers and teacher educators with a lens as they design new (or rethink existing) inquiry and teacher preparation programs in the meta-disciplinaryfield ofmulticultural education. Other objec- tives are to encourage multicultural theoreticians to consult a range of origi- nal research (as opposed to other theoreticians and secondary or tertiary sources in the field), and to underscore hopeful possibilities for practice. The framework also invites a rethinking of the genres as conceptualized in this paper. The proposed genres originate from the author's immersion in multi- cultural theory, research, and practice spanning over three decades. Examples of research are included to clarify the nature of the genres, as well as the inter- active connections across genres within the framework as a whole and impli- cationsforpractice.
