Duggaibah, or 'place of whiteness' : Australian feminist and race
Moreton-Robinson, Aileen M. (2000) Duggaibah, or 'place of whiteness' : Australian feminist and race. In Docker, John & Fischer, Gerhard (Eds.) Race, Colour and Identity in Australia and New Zealand. University of New South Wales Press, Sydney, pp. 240-255.
Our society operates in such a way as to put whiteness at the center of everything, including individual consciousness--so much so that we seldom question the centrality of white-
ness, and most people, on hearing 'race', hear 'black'. That is, whiteness is treated as the
norm, against which all differences are measured. 1
Race shapes white women's lives. In the same way that both men's and women's lives are
shaped by their gender, and that both heterosexual and lesbian women's experiences in the
world are marked by their sexuality, white people and people of color live racially structured
lives. In other words, any system of differentiation shapes those on whom it bestows privi-
lege as well as those it oppresses. White people are 'raced' just as men are 'gendered'. 2
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
