Encountering Disregard in Australian Academe: The Subjective Perspective of a Disaffiliated Racial "Other"
Coram, Stella
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v30 n3 p275-287 May 2009
This article proposes that progressive frameworks underpinned by diversity are contradictory to the inclusion of the "other" in Australian higher education. I integrate the critical race theory constructs of disregard and convergence with white privilege and indigenous lacking to claim that objective processes underpinned by merit embed the marginalising of the "other". I draw on storytelling to enunciate my subjective experience of disregard as a Maori woman scholar to shed light on institutional culture in the maintaining of insider privilege. (Contains 4 notes.)
