Article
Sexism and sexist ideology have significant negative consequences for female victims of sexual assault and other crimes. Thus, uncovering how language is used as a discursive tool for maintaining unequal power relations is extremely important in discourses around sexual misconduct and sexualized violence. In this study we used Critical Discourse An...
Article
Generally, writings about clergy sexual misconduct of adults tend to focus on a victim-abuser model, theorizing the causes and/or consequences or solutions to such abuse. With the exception of some analysis about the growth of Voice of the Faithful inside the Catholic Church (see), few researchers have focused theoretically on how members of religi...

Despite claims of a so-called war on Christmas, Christmas in the United States is still celebrated widely in public spaces. The question is why some people ignore, what some scholars call, their Christian privilege? In this paper, we explore the ignoring of Christian privilege in one public space: USA elementary schools. Using 27 interviews, we sho...
Article
To reduce Christo-normativity in United States of America schools, most schools tend to only educate teachers about what religious practices are allowed by law. The question we ask is whether a focus on structural policies, like law, works. We apply Bourdieu's theory of habitus, capital, and field to discuss the findings from 27 interviews we compl...
Article
This article shows the potential usefulness of applying Kegan’s constructive-developmental model to White teacher education students’ difficulties in understanding racial dynamics in US society. The data for this analysis come from a study examining the evolution of White teacher candidates’ understandings and practices related to diversity as they...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we discuss how a selection of eighth-grade students (13-14-year-olds) responded when they were asked to publicly challenge the gender binary for a critical media literacy school assignment in the USA. We describe the ways in which students negotiated the dual projects of complying with the assignment to create video ads that challeng...
Article
Full-text available
White teachers see racial diversity in the schools as a “necessary evil.” Common beliefs are that a) Black students are saved by nurturing White teachers and well-behaved White children, and b) White students learn from “disadvantaged“ Black children the dual lesson of empathy and gratitude.
Article
This article uses a Bourdieuian notion of organizational field and social movement’s frame analysis to understand the successful legitimation project of the socially responsible (SR) mutual fund industry. We show how institutional entrepreneurs, as both insiders and outsiders of the dominant organizational field, compete with existing mutual fund l...
Article
Objectives: By completing the “Rewind and Replay” activity, participants will: (1) identify heterosexist language in common classroom interactions, (2) discuss underlying heterosexist assumptions embedded in common teacher statements, (3) brainstorm inclusive terms and expressions for use in place of heterosexist language, and (4) verbally practice...

Article
The purpose of this article is to critique the main claim of the socially responsible (SR) investment industry: that through strategic investing investors can transform corporate power. I argue that businesses often respond to the demand by investors for short-term economic growth by making choices that run counter to the interests of corporate soc...
Article
Full-text available
Institutional entrepreneurs in organizational fields sometimes adopt collective-action frames that generate subcultural identities among consumers and mobilize them into purchasing goods. This article examines how socially responsible (SR) mutual fund companies use core-framing tasks to shore up the “corporate social responsibility” collective-acti...
Article
Full-text available
Scholarship on feminist pedagogy suggests that challenges to traditional forms of knowledge help university students overcome resistance to discussions about oppression. Because students assume that ‘truth’ is objective, they are unwilling to consider alternative voices from the ‘margins’. This paper theoretically argues and empirically examines wh...
Article
Shows how different levels of worker participation during a union organizing campaign influence the perceptions and actions of those same workers after the campaign ends, and, thereby, the long-term effectiveness and success of the organizing effort. Drawing on historical and current examples, the author analyzes the political and economic contexts...
Article
Full-text available
We argue that students' classroom resistance to the analysis of social inequality and other controversial topics commonly involves their application of norm/other logic to course material. Such logic manifests itself as morally laden dichotomies that identify the "norm" as superior to all "other" alternatives. Further, we argue that norm/other dich...
Article
Because union organizing is commonly studied as a single eve,lt rather than the beginning of a process, little is understood about how union organizing strategies continue to affect workers after campaigns end. In this article, I analyze interviews with workers organized by two union campaign strategies, the "comprehensive campaign" and the "blitz,...
Article
Participatory work strategies are praised by some labor advocates while condemned by others. Proponents claim that employee involvement strategies create cooperation between workers and management and that this cooperation benefits both groups. Critics argue that capitalist's goal of profit makes cooperation between managers and workers impossible....
Article
Worker participation, or lack thereof, in union organizing campaigns has mainly been explained by workers' individual characteristics. This article takes a broader perspective: It postulates that union characteristics, and most importantly, the manner in which the union presents itself, are crucial in individuals' decisions to participate. The arti...
