Abstract:

This research project seeks to build on previous studies in an effort to develop a typology of communicative strategies used by students to talk about race and analyze students' perceptions of these strategies. To do this, we employed an ethnographic case study approach, focusing on an advanced level course on Gender, Ethnicity and Communication at a predominantly white liberal arts college. Three types of data were collected: observational fieldnotes, in-depth interviews with all twenty-five students, and student response papers. Four strategies were identified: silence, laughter, saying "whites do that too" and metacommunication. The first three strategies were viewed in conflicting ways and often served to end discussion. The final strategy seemed to be promising in terms of its potential to promote more genuine dialogue among students.
