Item Description: Wayne State University Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 147 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Your Average Nigga , Vershawn Ashanti Young uses his own experiences to examine how black masculinity is shaped by identity performances of racial authenticity, academic literacy, class mobility, and sexuality. Moving between autobiography, autoethnography, and scholarly analysis, Young critiques proponents of code-switching whose solution to the black literacy gap requires inner-city youth to adopt white English vernacular at school and to reserve black English vernacular for home. Your Average Nigga exposes the factors that make black racial identity incompatible with literacy for blacks, especially black males. Drawing on scholarship in both performance theory and African American literary and cultural studies, Young argues that exaggerated perceptions of the gap between black and white linguistic performances harm inner-city blacks by requiring them to choose between abandoning their customary ways of speaking and behaving at the risk of alienating themselves from their families and communities and retaining their speech and behavior as a marker of racial authenticity while isolating themselves from mainstream society.Young also shows that exaggerated perceptions of the gap between black and white racial identities leave blacks in the impossible position of either trying to be white or forever struggling to prove that they are black enough. For men, this also becomes an endless struggle to prove that they are masculine enough. Ultimately, Young argues that far from denaturalizing supposedly fixed identity categories, as many theorists have contended, racial performance only reinscribes the essentialism that it is believed to subvert. Scholars and teachers of rhetoric, performance studies, and African American studies will enjoy this insightful volume. Bookseller Inventory # AAN9780814332481

BRAND NEW, Your Average Nigga: Performing Race, Literacy, and Masculinity, Vershawn Ashanti Young, In "Your Average Nigga", Vershawn Ashanti Young uses his own experiences to examine how black masculinity is shaped by identity performances of racial authenticity, academic literacy, class mobility, and sexuality.

Item Description: Wayne State University Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, From Bourgeois to Boojie: Black Middle-class Performances, Vershawn Ashanti Young, Bridget Harris Tsemo, Jeanette Berry, In "From Bourgeois to Boojie: Black Middle-Class Performances, " editor Vershawn Ashanti Young and assistant editor Bridget Harris Tsemo collect a diverse assortment of pieces that examine the generational shift in the perception of the black middle class, from the serious moniker of "bourgeois" to the more playful, sardonic "boojie." Including such senior cultural workers as Amiri Baraka and Houston Baker, as well as younger scholars like Damion Waymer and Candice Jenkins, this significant collection contains essays, poems, visual art, and short stories that examine the complex web of representations that define the contemporary black middle class. Young opens the book with a critical introduction that looks at the articulation of class and race as a mode of performing U.S. citizenship. In four thematic parts-Performing Responsibility, Performing Womanhood, Performing Media, and Performing Sexuality-contributors explore different aspects of middle-class blackness. Acknowledging that the black middle class could never be depicted satisfactorily by one genre or from one perspective, contributors include pieces as varied as drawings by Iowa artist Jean Berry; self-reflexive commentaries from cultural critics Bryant Keith Alexander, Houston Baker, Dwight McBride, and Greg Tate; a short story by novelist Venise Berry; and cultural critiques by scholars Harilaos Stecopoulos and Angela Nelson. The volume also contains a thoughtful foreword by performance artist and scholar E. Patrick Johnson and an astute afterword by sociologist Mary Pattillo. The journey from bourgeois to boojie embraces the long journey of African Americans from the cotton field and the assembly line to the corporate conference table and the White House. This insightful and diverse volume will be relevant to scholars of performance studies, African American studies, American literature, performative writing, and sociology, as well as creative writers and those interested in contemporary political discourse on race.

Item Description: Teachers College Press, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book presents an empirically grounded argument for a new approach of teaching writing to diverse students in the English language arts classroom. Responding to advocates of the code-switching approach, four uniquely qualified authors make the case for code-meshing --allowing students to use standard English, African American English, and other Englishes in formal academic writing and classroom discussions. This practical resource translates theory into a concrete roadmap for pre- and in-service teachers who wish to use code-meshing in the classroom to extend students abilities as writers and thinkers and to foster inclusiveness and creativity. The text provides activities and examples from middle and high schools as well as college and addresses the question of how to advocate for code-meshing with sceptical administrators, parents, and students. Book Features: * A rationale for the social and educational value of code-meshing, including answers to frequently asked questions about language variation. * Authors from the fields of linguistics, writing studies, English education, and teacher education.* Teaching tips that have been used with students and in professional development workshops. * Action plans that invite readers to make code-meshing a shared project that informs instructional practices and addresses cultural prejudices.

Item Description: Wayne State University Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 192 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.8in. x 0.5in.In Your Average Nigga, Vershawn Ashanti Young disputes the belief that speaking Standard English and giving up Black English Vernacular helps black students succeed academically. Young argues that this assumption not only exaggerates the differences between two compatible varieties of English but forces black males to choose between an education and their masculinity, by choosing to act either white or black. As one would expect from a scholar who is subject to the very circumstances he studies, Young shares his own experiences as he exposes the factors that make black racial identity irreconcilable with literacy for blacks, especially black males. Drawing on a range of interdisciplinary scholarship in performance theory and African American literary and cultural studies, Young shows that the linguistic conflict that exists between black and white language styles harms black students from the inner city the most. If these students choose to speak Standard English they risk alienating themselves from their families and communities, and if they choose to retain their customary speech and behavior they may isolate themselves from mainstream society. Young argues that this conflict leaves blacks in the impossible position of either trying to be white or forever struggling to prove that they are black enough. For men, this also becomes an endless struggle to prove that they are masculine enough. Young calls this constant effort to display proper masculine and racial identity the burden of racial performance. Ultimately, Young argues that racial and verbal performances are a burden because they cannot reduce the causes or effects of racism, nor can they denaturalize supposedly fixed identity categories, as many theorists contend. On the contrary, racial and verbal performances only reinscribe the essentialism that they are believed to subvert. Scholars and teachers of rhetoric, performance studies, and African American studies will enjoy this insightful volume. This item ships from multiple locations.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In Your Average Nigga , Vershawn Ashanti Young uses his own experiences to examine how black masculinity is shaped by identity performances of racial authenticity, academic literacy, class mobility, and sexuality. Moving between autobiography, autoethnography, and scholarly analysis, Young critiques proponents of code-switching whose solution to the black literacy gap requires inner-city youth to adopt white English vernacular at school and to reserve black English vernacular for home. Your Average Nigga exposes the factors that make black racial identity incompatible with literacy for blacks, especially black males. Drawing on scholarship in both performance theory and African American literary and cultural studies, Young argues that exaggerated perceptions of the gap between black and white linguistic performances harm inner-city blacks by requiring them to choose between abandoning their customary ways of speaking and behaving at the risk of alienating themselves from their families and communities and retaining their speech and behavior as a marker of racial authenticity while isolating themselves from mainstream society.Young also shows that exaggerated perceptions of the gap between black and white racial identities leave blacks in the impossible position of either trying to be white or forever struggling to prove that they are black enough.

Item Description: Teachers' College Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Other People's English: Code-Meshing, Code-Switching, and African American Literacy, Vershawn Ashanti Young, This book presents an empirically grounded argument for a new approach of teaching writing to diverse students in the English language arts classroom. Responding to advocates of the "code-switching" approach, four uniquely qualified authors make the case for "code-meshing"--allowing students to use standard English, African American English, and other Englishes in formal academic writing and classroom discussions. This practical resource translates theory into a concrete roadmap for pre- and in-service teachers who wish to use code-meshing in the classroom to extend students' abilities as writers and thinkers and to foster inclusiveness and creativity. The text provides activities and examples from middle and high schools as well as college and addresses the question of how to advocate for code-meshing with sceptical administrators, parents, and students.Book Features:* A rationale for the social and educational value of code-meshing, including answers to frequently asked questions about language variation. * Authors from the fields of linguistics, writing studies, English education, and teacher education. * Teaching tips that have been used with students and in professional development workshops. * Action plans that invite readers to make code-meshing a shared project that informs instructional practices and addresses cultural prejudices.
