Representation of Ethnic Identity in North American Social Work Literature: A Dossier of the Chinese People.
Tsang, A. Ka Tat
Social Work, v46 n3 p229-43 Jul 2001
Using Foucault's dossier approach, the author uses the Chinese people as a case example to illustrate the politics of identification and identity assignment in professional social work literature in North America. The article reveals how Chinese people are essentialized, otherized, and negatively positioned as an ethnic construct. (BF)
