  • Transcript

    • 1. Privilege Dr. Sara Diaz WGST 202: Gender, Difference, and Power Gonzaga University
    • 2. Dorothy Allison • How do we see internalized oppression reflected in Dorothy Allison’s story? • In what ways do we see the intersection of oppressions in her story?
    • 3. Dorothy Allison • What aspects of Allison’s story illustrate the maintenance of systems of oppression that Kirk & Okazawa-Rey discuss in the intro to Chapter 3? • What levels of analysis (micro, meso, macro) are present in her story? What is happening at each of these levels in her story?
    • 4. Mary C. Waters • Why does Mary C. Waters call some white people’s claim to ethnic identity a “symbolic identity”? • How is this a source of tension and misunderstanding between people of European descent and people of color in the United States?
    • 5. Mary C. Waters • Why does Mary Waters say that symbolic or optional ethnicities have a cost for society? What are those costs? • What might those who have the option to choose a symbolic ethnicity for themselves do to understand the broad range of ethnic/racial experiences in the United States?
    • 6. Mary Waters • What is the relationship of liberal individualism and pluralism to the phenomenon of symbolic ethnicity? • How do you see liberal individualism working in Dorothy Allison’s story?
