Reconstructing Rituals: Expressions of Autonomy and Resistance in a Sino-Indonesian School.
Bjork, Christopher
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v33 n4 p465-491 Dec 2002
Examined the role that rituals enacted in an Indonesian school serving predominantly Chinese students played in shaping behavior, inculcating values, and sustaining a learning community. Describes a flag ceremony that highlighted the school's relationship with the state and linking the school's response to government directives to the marginal position of the community it served. Suggests that school communities can utilize rituals to assert resistance to dominant culture. (SM)
