Interrogating the Grammars of Institutions and Injustice
Bradley, Deborah
Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, v16 n3 p1-14 Nov 2017
This editorial introduction to "Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education" "ACT" 16 (3) explores institutions as sites of paradox whose mission statements (or constitutions in the case of government) suggest concerns for diversity and inclusion but whose "grammars" (Bonilla-Silva 2011) frame thought and action in ways that may prevent the very work towards equity that the statements promote. The grammars of institutional injustice serve to frame the way we (as actors within institutional settings) view social phenomena, as well as the way we experience these phenomena, thus influencing the way we talk about, frame, and strive to resolve matters of injustice.
