This chapter highlights the contributions drawn from the case studies in the volume to identity work and identity theory but also to future directions for theory and meta-ethnography (qualitative synthesis). Overall, the chapter analyzes how the contributors theorized with meta-ethnography in and through their studies. The collective findings of their analyses on the cultural construction of identities in education in particular emphasize race and ethnicity and their intersections with gender, class, and sexual orientation. The chapter further confirms that the Western identity binary is a set-up that (a) upholds power hierarchies and (b) protects whiteness. Meta-ethnography in this book has been about advancing scholarship through seeing synthesis as related to theory, and especially critical theories, and these efforts can be used strategically to address, and alter, injustices.

Keywords:   identity theory, meta-ethnography, qualitative synthesis, cultural identity, education
