Rearticulating Whiteness: A Precursor to Difficult Dialogues on Race
Reason, Robert D.
College Student Affairs Journal, v26 n2 p127-135 Spr 2007
This article reviews findings from a related study of 15 White racial justice allies, which highlighted the importance of re-articulating a sense of Whiteness. The author explores how the rearticulated sense of Whiteness demonstrated by these students may assist others to mitigate some of the defense mechanism discussed in the Watt (2007) Privileged Identity Exploration Model.
