Example text

This recognition, that minority groups have certain entitlements, has in turn incited a siege mentality within Australia’s ‘dominant white culture’ (Hage 1993). Extrapolating from these observations it is not difficult to identify a similar sense of ‘siege’ around inner Sydney. This sense of siege is felt at the local through to the national and even international levels, and was exemplified well in reports of the ‘Sickening [‘race’] Riots’ that ‘Rocked Sydney’ (Sydney Morning Herald, 16 February 2004, 1).

By the 1990s, the cultural politics of gentrification, or as Loretta Lees (1999, 127) put it, the usefulness of the ‘tensions between different theoretical positions’, had gained recognition. In my view, the great theoretical leap forward in gentrification thinking occurred with the inclusion of localized cultural politics (Lees 1994, Jackson 1995, Jacobs 1996, Redfern 1997), particularly when considered within the context of broader, more global, political economies (Smith 1996). Critiques of the larger economics of gentrification led to the understanding that gentrification was not a homogeneous process; events were not necessarily replicable from city to city, or from country to country (cf Engels 1999).

24 My positioned reading of Paradise – and I am fairly sure that I am not the only one who made such blundering assumptions – revealed to me that another kind of whiteness was in operation even in the absence of the (expected) ethnicity within the story. I had inadvertently naturalized, centralized and, in this case, incorrectly perceived a universal ethnicity. It was the process of my defaulting to such a categorization, as well as the assumption itself, that constituted a processural form of whiteness and alerted me to the need to critically interrogate the embedded, discursive and yet arbitrary ways of whiteness.
