A fascinating ethnographic study of a high school in Toronto, with surprising insights into how these adolescents identify themselves in terms of race, gender, ethnicity, and sexuality.



Book News
Yon (anthropology, York U., Toronto) examines a local high school as a space within which teachers and students shift and slide in relation to the policies and practices of anti-racism, multiculturalism, and the competing discourses of identity. He draws on personal observation, conversation with students and teachers, experimental work in drama, the use of video, and student writing to develop a complex view of identity and culture attuned to the ambivalent and contradictory processes of everyday life.
