Proponents of "Multicultural" Humanities Research Call for a Critical Look at Its Achievements.
Winkler, Karen J.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v38 n13 pA5,8-9 Nov 28 1990
Multicultural scholarship was critiqued by proponents at a meeting of the American Studies Association for a "politics of style" substituting for analysis of society; a "particularism" that has divided researchers into separate camps; and a "political correctness" that has avoided self-criticism. One issue raised was that multiculturalism further marginalizes minority groups. (DB)
