Students and a "Culture of Resistance" in Provincetown's Schools.
Faiman-Silva, Sandra
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v33 n2 p189-212 Jun 2002
Based on fieldwork from 1995-2002, this paper explores how students in Provincetown, Massachusetts developed a culture of resistance to dominant discourses of tolerance and acceptance. By deconstructing how schools are sites of intergroup conflicts over gender tolerance and public school ownership, student resistance conduct is shown to be a response to perceived alienation from mainstream social norms and discourses.
