(PDF) White Men Can’t Dance: Evaluating Race, Class and Rationality in Ethnographies of the Esoteric

When I got my grade for the paper it was lower than I had expected, so I went to the professor to get feedback. He told me that he would have liked more of a historical and contextual focus to the project and wanted to read more about the history of the Golden Dawn. I told him I must have misunderstood because I believed that the assignment was supposed to look at participation, experience and meaning. He then sighed and said ‘perhaps this is a bias of mine and something I need to get over, but I just have trouble understanding why it’s significant when white people do this kind of thing.’
