There is an important difference between sharing an interest and creating a practice which records and legitimatises
meaning and this difference is evident in the community studied.
By assigning to school meals the function of preserving local traditions, the Italian model legitimatises
the possibility of 'discriminating' in favour of local operators.
I see Keeffe's labelling of the persistence model as relatively conservative and the resistance model as relatively radical as a moral judgment which legitimatises
the supervisory gaze of white academics in Aboriginal Studies.
