We Are (Not) All Bulldogs: Minoritized Peer Socialization Agents' Meaning-Making about Collegiate Contexts
Linley, Jodi L.
Journal of College Student Development, v58 n5 p643-656 Jul 2017
In this study I examined the ways minoritized students who serve as peer socialization agents made meaning of their collegiate contexts in relation to their identities and socialization positions. Using the framework of Critical Race Theory and the concept of a meaning-making filter, I explored the meaning-making of 13 minoritized peer socialization agents (MPSAs) at a predominantly White institution. MPSAs mobilized meaning-making filters developed by counterspaces and enacted counterstorytelling as an act of resistance to the dominant narrative of the institution.
