Explorations in Ethnic Studies
The articles found in this issue of Explorations in Ethnic Studies focus on a wide variety of topics. The first article by E. San Juan, Jr. challenges Ethnic Studies scholars to reassess the principles and goals of the discipline. Utilizing the experience of Asians in U.S. history, San Juan, Jr. highlights flaws in the pluralistic focus of culture that is separate and apart from the economic and political contexts of minority/majority power relationships. He contends that ethnic studies scholars need to critically address the problem of power, the knowledge it produces and that legitimates the misuse and abuse of such power.
