Preference as Performance: Doing Social Class and Gender in Three School Libraries.
Dressman, Mark
Journal of Literacy Research, v29 n3 p319-61 Sep 1997
Examines the construct of reader preference along the lines of gender and social class. Argues that children's expressions of preference are often enactments of what they believe it means to be categorically male or female, whereas their ways of relating to different genres of text, and how they choose to read, often enact the material logic of their social class.
