Taming Multiculturalism: The Will to Literacy in Composition Studies.
Vandenberg, Peter
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v19 n4 p547-68 1999
Presents a review of composition textbooks and professional discourse. Claims the transformative potential of multiculturalism is often subordinated to the task of reducing "cultural distance," and that acquiring multicultural literacy may demand a long, deep and compliant congruity with dominant-culture literacy education.
