Elusive Culture brushes provocatively against the grain of most ethnographic texts, refusing to work out and work out of a rigid set of binary oppositions and gesturing instead toward the evocative intersection of spatial practices, ambivalence, routed-ness, and subjectivity.
Employing the concepts of difference, globalization, diaspora, and identity in an attempt to understand how subjectivity is constructed out of the concrete social practices of everyday lived experience, Yon is able to draw important attention to the specificity of racism and racist subjectivities that have eluded many critical ethnographers. Elusive Culture is a major contribution to the literature on critical ethnography. Peter McLaren, author of Life in Schools and Schooling as a Ritual Performance
This is a wonderful work that has compassion and passion toward youth, as well as, at times, adult disbelief. Victoria I. Munoz, author of Where Something Catches: Work, Love, and Identity in Youth"
"Elusive Culture brushes provocatively against the grain of most ethnographic texts, refusing to work out--and work out of--a rigid set of binary oppositions and gesturing instead toward the evocative intersection of spatial practices, ambivalence, routed-ness, and subjectivity.
