Reading Cultural Representations: The Limitations of Critical Literacy
Bertanees, Cherry; Thornley, Christina
Pedagogy, Culture and Society, v13 n1 p75-85 2005
In written texts the culture of colonised subjects is often depicted as immutable and homogeneous. This is evident in the context of New Zealand where representations of Maori frequently serve to reinforce these depictions. This article investigates the potential of critical literacy approaches to challenge student teachers' commonly held beliefs about culture.
