Resisting Racism, Classism and Other "Isms": The Challenges of Whiteness Studies Scholarship for Communication Pedagogy.
Fassett, Deanna L.
This paper, written in a highly personal style, follows the "docustory" model first employed in "Communication Education" in 1993 when the journal presented a series of 13 docustories from various scholars in the field--each tried to articulate "When Teaching Works." The paper is a partial attempt to value the experiences of the newly transitioning assistant professor, someone who is attempting to birth her "graduate student soul" into a new body, a new role. In many ways, the paper is an exploration of what whiteness studies, as an exploration of the interstices of power, privilege, and disenfranchisement, might mean for teacher-scholars at work in communication theory. The paper illustrates, through six vignettes, one particular assistant professor's life as a member of the communication faculty at a university. (NKA)
