Urban Appalachian Girls and Writing: Institutional and "Other/ed" Identities
Schwartz, Tammy A.
Pedagogy, Culture and Society, v11 n1 p69-87 2003
This study addresses urban Appalachian girls and identities as constructed within and outside of the written discourses of the institution known as school. Drawing on poststructuralist (Weedon, 1997) and sociocultural (Gee, 1996) perspectives of language, identities and discourses (Gee, 1996), and on the feminist philosopher Griffiths (1995), it is argued that girls' identities are dependent upon consent given to particular relationships available in various discourses.
