What a Little Hate Literature Will Do: "Cultural Issues" and the Emotional Aspect of School Change.
DiPardo, Anne
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v31 n3 p306-32 Sep 2000
Describes a cultural issues class, examining research on a high school responding to neo-Nazi incidents. Argues that by emphasizing international rather than local issues, the class depoliticized ethnic difference and ignored white privilege at the classroom, school, and community level. Traces this neutralizing urge to collective emotions of shame and guilt, which prompted efforts to bolster the school's reputation but prohibited critical exploration of inequity and conflict. (SM)
