about

This book begins with an historical overview of the development of the concept of multiculturalism as it has been implemented in the American university. The book defines American multiculturalism through a focus on the ways theories and practices of historical, non-critical, multiculturalism have been used in the discourse of academic English departments. The author maps the problematic relationship between radical theory and institutional practices, which impedes the development of a critical multiculturalism that engages both literary theory and pedagogy. This critical multicultural theory and practice work to reconsider the traditional value of difference. _

?Antonette convincingly makes the case that a student of critical multicultural pedagogy is less likely to resist difference or to respond to differences perceived outside of himself or herself in a negative manner. This book is recommended for both teachers of English and administrators in colleges and universities.?-Mutlicultural Review
