Bigger, Stephen (1999) Changing Multiculturalism. Kincheloe and Steinberg. (Book Review). Taylor and Francis, London.
A review of J. Kincheloe and S Steinberg, (1998) Changing Multiculturalism Thousand Oaks: Sage. This book avowedly comes from the stable that leads from John Dewey to Paulo Freire, in whose memory the book is dedicated. Freire’s emancipatory and transformative work with the “oppressed” provides a powerful theme. It explores how our consciousness of race, class and gender has been produced, and how it impacts upon our sense of identity. It brings together two American scholars, Kincheloe from cultural studies and Steinberg from educational drama. It focuses on the diversity of ‘multiculturalisms’ and begins its analysis from the perspective of the many who are in ‘diaspora’, living and even born into a land not their ancestral home.
