Charmaz, Kathy – American Sociologist, 2008

Gordon, Jane Anna – Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, 2010
"Elitism" is frequently invoked among the pantheon of "isms" actively to be disavowed. Indeed the charge of elitism often takes the form of reiteration, of identifying yet another manifestation of adherence to traditional standards steeped in discrimination by sex, race, and class, this time in their institutional guises in the merit credited to…

Skaggs, Steven; Hausman, Carl R. – Journal of Aesthetic Education, 2012
Recent decades have seen a flattening of the playing field in terms of the arts. The rise of popular culture programs in universities is one of the by-products of this attitude, which rejects the traditional hierarchical status of arts by genre. However, something vital is lost in that little attention is paid to the experiential aspects of…

Andreotti, Vanessa – International Studies in Sociology of Education, 2009

They argue for the primacy of academic objectivity as the criteria for what counts as…

Elizabeth Cady Stanton has been celebrated for her astute rhetorical contributions to woman's rights advocacy and highly criticized for her racist and elitist sentiments about citizenship and the franchise.
