Out in the Academy: Heterosexism, Invisibility, and Double Consciousness.
Wallace, David L.
College English, v65 n1 p53-66 Sep 2002
Provides a mini-autoethnography of three institutional moments in which the author saw a set of conditions that invited him to speak or write as a gay academic to make political interventions in dominant culture. Explores three important issues that are often unacknowledged in everyday discussions of homosexuality: exposing heteronormativity as heterosexism, moving beyond invisibility, and the trap of "double consciousness."
