Cultural Implications: achieving anti-discriminatory practices

Burnett, Bruce M. (2000) Cultural Implications: achieving anti-discriminatory practices. In Meadmore, Daphne A., Burnett, Bruce M., & Tait, Gordon W. (Eds.) Practising education : social and cultural perspectives. Prentice Hall, Frenchs Forest, N.S.W..


Notions of discrimination have a wide range of interpretations which can be applied to a variety of contexts. This chapter discusses the topic within the framework of a practice which evolves. In short it is argued that discriminatory practices change, and this is evident in the move away from overt acts towards those less easily observed forms that are increasingly channelled through the medium of culture.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
