Culture as Catalyst and Constraint: Toward a New Perspective on Difference.
Robertson, Elizabeth; Martin, Bruce K.
College English, v62 n4 p492-510 Mar 2000
Discusses an attempt to work both narratively and critically, recognizing that the narratives of experience first constructed (spoken and written) represent a necessary convergence of history, tradition, politics, and interpretation, which represents sites of contest and conflict. Discusses the willingness to allow expression of cultural attitudes within the classroom while openly acknowledging the simultaneous constraints produced when such attitudes conflict. (SC)
