Tips for reading Carlson:
Read the first two sections carefully. Carlson introduces his concept of the "normalizing community" and goes on to discussof the reconstruction of the notion of community and the three techniques of normalization that are exerted "to keep gayness in its place." Feel free to skim/skip the next two sections. We will be spending quite a bit of time on the last section. In it, Carlson outlines 5 components of democratic, multicultural education. We will share our understandings of these characteristics with one another in class.
