White Men Can't Teach: Native Authors, White Teachers, and Classroom Authority.
Cooper, Burns
Studies in American Indian Literatures, v6 n1 p11-23 Spr 1994
A white male professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks taught an experimental section of a composition course with a reading list composed almost entirely of American Indian and Alaska Native authors. Vocal controversies about the readings were attributed to fundamentalist views, lack of experience in reading literature, sensitivity about ethnic issues, and feminism. (KS)
