Recognizing Privilege: Rural, Urban, and International Perspectives
Munn, Sunny L.; Rinfret, Sara; Davitt, Kendra
New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, v24 n2-4 p4-18 2010
Forms of White oppression in the United States are hierarchically evaluated through male-dominated society. This paper concentrates on a different perspective--White, female privilege through the experiences and self-reflections of narratives from three geographical perspectives--rural, urban, and international. Within the theoretical frameworks of place and geography these stories come to life through an autoethnographic approach to establish that we can "unpack the invisible knapsack" in the arena of adult education. (Contains 1 footnote.)
