Abstract

The white Western self as a racial being has for the most part remained unexamined and unnamed. On the one hand, studies of racial and cultural identities have tended to view the range of potential subjects of research as limited to those who differ from the (unnamed) norm. On the other hand, whiteness has elsewhere been simultaneously ignored and universalised. ...In short, whiteness and Westerness have not, for the most part, been conceived as 'the problem' in the eyes of white Western people, whether in research or elsewhere. (Frankenberg, 1993, pp. 17-18)
