Out There: Marginalization and Contemporary Cultures
Marcia Tucker Foreword, Russell Ferguson Editor, Martha Gever Editor, Triah T. Minh-ha Editor, Corne
This text addresses the question of cultural marginalization - the process through which various groups are excluded from access to and participation in the dominant culture. An anthology that juxtaposes diverse points of view on issues of gender, race, sexual preference, and class, it takes up the fundamental issues raised when attempts are made to define concepts such as mainstream and minority, and it opens up new ways of thinking about culture and representation in society.
