Youth Debriefing Diversity Workshops: Conversational Contexts that Forge Intercultural Alliances across Differences
Quijada, David Alberto
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v22 n4 p449-468 Jul 2009
This article examines how an ethnically diverse group of youth critically debriefs their facilitation of diversity workshops for other youth. Using naturally occurring tape-recorded conversations and a critical ethnographic and discourse analysis perspective, the article examines youth's contributions towards a participatory process of learning, constituted in dialogical relations of conflict and coalition. Revealed is how participants engage diverse subjectivities, agency and concern for others by co-creating conversations that go beyond their paid intern responsibilities as diversity trainers. In conversation they co-create opportunities, "conversational contexts", that promote intercultural alliances and (in)form education and learning. (Contains 3 notes.)
