Description

This presentation analyzes dominant discourses that continue to frame public discussion of the U.S.-Dakota War in Minnesota’s sesquicentennial era. Specifically, it examines discourses of neutrality, balance, and objectivity, and the collective barrier they pose to social justice education on 1862. By sharing data collected from regional media outlets and interviews conducted in a college course on the war in 2012, the presentation reveals a white sense of justice, “justice as fairness‚ and underlying regional objectivist discourses.
