  • Descrição: This research note offers critical reaction to Elke Winter's Us, Them and Others in an effort to trigger debate around the issues she identifies and her model (us + others1-n = multicultural we [not =] them1-n). Critiques include: a looseness and inconsistency with some key concepts and arguments, a narrow sample and timeframe of analysis, and missed opportunities to revisit past luminaries that identify underlying causal mechanisms rather than descriptive labels alone. Despite these criticisms, it is argued that Winter's model has the potential to strike a chord with a broad range of scholars because it tackles issues that are front and center in contemporary debates, and it manages to offer new insights that allow scholars to return to overlooked and under-appreciated scholarship.
