Shifting Identities in Private Education: Reconstructing Race at/in the Cultural Center

Examines social constructs of white racial identity among adolescent girls attending a largely white, elite, private, single-sex high school. Students' voices illustrate how liberal discourses position youth and how white youth actively remake themselves in relation to prevailing meanings and practices institutionalized in private schools. Examines the intersections of race and class discourses in private-school culture. (SM)
