The Neglected Marginal Man Thesis and Marginality: Robert Park and Everett Stonequist

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Robert Park and Everett Stonequist are neglected sociologists. Their important theoretical contribution concerning marginality has been ignored in the last few decades, with the only exception being some research on Judaism and Jewish Americans. The out-dated term Caucasian continues to be used but the terms "Metis" and "mulatto" are now considered politically incorrect in the U.S. The key aspect of the Marginal Man (or Person) thesis is the idea that someone who experiences marginality must either "sink" or "swim." National background may mean returning to the home country (e.g. Poland). But it is harder to shake one's genetic background. We tend to remember those who succeeded and we often forget all those who did not prosper. The global world will make the marginality concept even more important as more and more people connect and blend ethnically and racially. We have forgotten that W.A.S.P. refered initially to only an elite group and not all those who are considered culturally "white."
