Basing Educational Anthropology on the Education of Anthropologists: Can Bilingualism and Biculturalism Promote the Fundamental Goals of Anthropology Better than Multiculturalism?
Thompson, Richard H.
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v34 n1 p96-107 Mar 2003
Utilizes ethnographic research, the history of anthropology, and literature on multiculturalism, biculturalism, and bilingualism to assert that neither multiculturalism nor multicultural education can mitigate the assimilationist and racializing costs. Eurocentrism poses for immigrants and minoritized groups. Proposes a policy of bilingual and bicultural education for all students, asserting that the education of anthropologists can be a model for an educational anthropology that effectively addresses foundational disciplinary goals.
