Coming of Age as a Culture? Emancipatory and Hegemonic Readings of "The Indian in the Cupboard."
Sanchez, Victoria E.; Stuckey, Mary E.
Western Journal of Communication, v64 n1 p78-91 Win 2000
Contributes to scholarship advancing the understanding of communication regarding texts containing both hegemonic and emancipatory messages. Finds elements in "The Indian in the Cupboard" that promote emancipatory readings: maturation, overt challenges to hegemonic codes, and proffering of implicit alternatives to those codes. Discusses how such texts can perpetuate as well as undermine existing patterns of cultural interaction and dominance. (SR)
