Race and the Greek system in the 21st Century: Centering the voices of Asian American women.
MetadataShow full item record
This study examines both the presence and absence of Asian Americans in a sorority system at a predominantly White institution in the Southeastern U.S. Using critical race theory to analyze interviews with eighteen Asian American college women, half of whom belonged to sororities and half who did not, the study asks the following questions: How do Asian American women both inside and outside Greek life view sororities? Are sororities a site where race still matters? How do Asian American women recognize the role of race or downplay its significance in their perceptions of sororities?
