In Search of the "Korean Part": Reinforcing Cultural Boundaries in a Korean Language School
Park, Eujin
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v49 n3 p279-295 Sep 2018
This article draws from an ethnographic case study that examined the diverse and contradictory roles of one Korean language school in a predominantly White mid-sized Midwestern city. While the school provided ethnic and cultural affirmation and respite from racial marginalization, it also reproduced dominant notions of culture that excluded some students from an "authentic" Korean identity. The article demonstrates that community-based spaces play an important role in defining the boundaries of cultural "authenticity."
