The Politics of Postmodernism: Rethinking the Boundaries of Race and Ethnicity.
Giroux, Henry A.
Journal of Urban and Cultural Studies, v1 n1 p5-38 1990
The dominant discourses of modernity have rarely addressed race and ethnicity as part of a theory of difference and democratic struggle. A postmodern discourse of resistance must develop a cultural politics and antiracist pedagogy. The work of Black feminists and writers can rewrite the relations between power and difference. (SLD)
