'We're multicultural mate!' : regional Australian discourses of multiculturalism and the reproduction of 'white Australia' as a national identity /

by Koerner, Catherine | The Australian Sociological Association | Haggis, Jane.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.) Bibliography : p. 10-11Summary: This paper considers the complexities of 'everyday understandings' of multiculturalism as a discourse to deal with racialised difference. The paper is based on one of the author's doctoral research which analyses the complexities of how whiteness and race are socially produced and lived in regional Australia. Drawing on a set of qualitative interviews conducted in South Australia with 29 people who self-identity as 'white Australian' we consider the social and political history of a 'white Australia' continues to inform the terms of multiculturalism for these people. We argue that this reflects the ways that state multiculturalism manages diversity and obscures the language of race. As a consequence the white national identity remains raced without an everyday vocabulary to deal with it.Availability: (1)

"Where are you from" : the paradox of African identity and belonging in Australia /

by Mapedzahama, Virginia | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.)Summary: This paper interrogates the question 'where are you from' by drawing on our experiences and points of view as visibly different African migrants who get asked this 'quintessential question of identity' almost on a daily basis. While acknowledging that a certain 'curiosity' sometimes drives the asking of this question, we still question the implications and multiplicity of meanings to those whom it is asked. We contend that being asked the question raises three key issues for us. First, we perceive it as exclusionary, in that in a white dominated society it is asked, mainly of certain groups of people who are visibly different. Second, the assumption behind the question - that one is not 'from here', constructs an/other whose identity is fixed and tied only to one faraway place, thereby erasing our hyphenated identities, which define our everyday lived realities. Third, it invokes feelings of ambivalence about place when it is interpreted as demanding a justification of the claim to belonging and being 'from here'. Our paper shows that the question is a matter of identity politics and exposes the complexity of identity work that occurs whenever this question is asked of us. In so doing, it highlights the contradiction between our Australian 'selves' and migrant 'other'.Availability: (1)

[Mis]recognition, social inequality and social justice /

by Fraser, Nancy | Bourdieu, Pierre | Lovell, Terry (ed.).

Publisher: London, U.K. Routledge 2007Description: xi, 209 p. : ill. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: "Nancy Fraser's work provides a theory of justice from multiple perspectives, which has created a powerful frame for the analysis of political, moral and pragmatic dilemmas in an era of global capitalism and cultural pluralism. This collection of essays considers some of the conceptual and philosophical contentions that Fraser's model has provoked and presents some compelling examples of its analytical power in a range of contexts in which the politics of social justice are at issue, including the politics of justice in South Africa, and social policy. It includes essays on queer theory and the paradoxical effects of gay marriage and civil partnerships, on the imbalance in the social composition of UK parliamentary representation and on the significance of class."-- Book jacket. ; Contents: Introduction / Terry Lovell -- Re-framing justice in a globalizing world / Nancy Fraser -- Justice and the public sphere : the dynamics of Nancy Fraser's critical theory / Mari a Pi a Lara and Robert Fine -- Sexuality, subjectivity, and economics / Mandy Merck -- Nancy Fraser's theory of justice : a sociologically rich model for a global capitalist era? / Terry Lovell -- Class, moral worth, and recognition / Andrew Sayer -- Feminist critiques of Bourdieu : the case of social capital / Christina Hughes and Loraine Blaxter -- NQOC : social identity and representation in British politics / Joanna Liddle and Elisabeth Michielsens -- (Mis)-recognition, social inequality and social justice : a critical social policy perspective / Ruth Lister -- Needs, rights and transformations : the adjudication of social rights in South Africa / Sandra Liebenberg.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).
