Projecting the Voices of Others: Issues of Representation in Teaching Race and Ethnicity.
Berry, Kate A.
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v21 n2 p283-89 Jul 1997
Discusses the practice of first-person accounts in curriculum examinations of race and ethnicity. Refutes the essentialist notion that only members of a particular group can address issues concerning that group. Argues that nonmembers can contribute to a productive examination as long as they have some knowledge of their limitations. (MJP)
