Learning and Living Difference That Makes a Difference: Postmodern Theory and Multicultural Education.
Jacobs, Walter R.
Multicultural Education, v9 n4 p2-10 Sum 2002
Multiculturalism that both transforms and informs is important. Recommends applying postmodern theory to transformative understanding of multiculturalism. Juxtaposes transformative multiculturalism with aspects of postmodern theorization of American society, illustrating this theoretical construct with research on college classrooms as "subaltern counterpublics" where students and instructors invent oppositional counterdiscourses to formulate oppositional interpretations of their identities, interests, and needs.
