Seeing White by Jean Halley,Amy Eshleman,Ramya Mahadevan Vijaya Summary

This interdisciplinary textbook challenges students to see race as everyone's issue. Drawing on sociology, psychology, history, and economics, Seeing White introduces students to the concepts of white privilege and social power. Seeing White is designed to help break down some of the resistance students feel in discussing race. Each chapter opens with compelling concrete examples to help students approach issues from a range of perspectives. The early chapters build a solid understanding of privilege and power, leading to a critical exploration of discrimination. Key theoretical perspectives include cultural materialism, critical race theory, and the social construction of race. Each chapter includes discussion questions to help students evaluate institutions and policies that perpetuate or counter forces of privilege and discrimination. The website www.seeingwhite.org includes multidisciplinary demonstrations, activities, examples, and images for researchers and instructors who seek to explain racism and reveal white privilege.

Whiteness at Work by Michael A. Moreno,Kathryn Quinn-Sánchez,Michele Shaul Summary

This volume presents personal essays that explore the effects of whiteness in the workplace, both illuminating the perniciousness of whiteness and recording the downright appalling manifestations of it. Some contributions here describe overt discrimination and hateful acts experienced by the writers themselves, while others describe how whiteness has affected colleagues, clients, students and friends. Using a combination of storytelling and scholarship, the collection makes a compelling case for effecting changes in individuals who, and systems that, perpetuate disparities of opportunity, compensation, advancement and well-being.

Confronting Injustice without Compromising Truth by Thaddeus J. Williams Summary

God does not suggest, he commands that we do justice. Social justice is not optional for the Christian. All injustice affects others, so talking about justice that isn't social is like talking about water that isn't wet or a square with no right angles. But the Bible's call to seek justice is not a call to superficial, kneejerk activism. We are not merely commanded to execute justice, but to "truly execute justice." The God who commands us to seek justice is the same God who commands us to "test everything" and "hold fast to what is good." Drawing from a diverse range of theologians, sociologists, artists, and activists, Confronting Injustice without Compromising Truth, by Thaddeus Williams, makes the case that we must be discerning if we are to "truly execute justice" as Scripture commands. Not everything called "social justice" today is compatible with a biblical vision of a better world. The Bible offers hopeful and distinctive answers to deep questions of worship, community, salvation, and knowledge that ought to mark a uniquely Christian pursuit of justice. Topics addressed include: Racism Sexuality Socialism Culture War Abortion Tribalism Critical Theory Identity Politics Confronting Injustice without Compromising Truth also brings in unique voices to talk about their experiences with these various social justice issues, including: Michelle-Lee Barnwall Suresh Budhaprithi Eddie Byun Freddie Cardoza Becket Cook Bella Danusiar Monique Duson Ojo Okeye Edwin Ramirez Samuel Sey Neil Shenvi Walt Sobchak In Confronting Injustice without Compromising Truth, Thaddeus Williams transcends our religious and political tribalism and challenges readers to discover what the Bible and the example of Jesus have to teach us about justice. He presents a compelling vision of justice for all God's image-bearers that offers hopeful answers to life's biggest questions.

“I Don’t See Color” by Bettina Bergo,Tracey Nicholls Summary

Who is white, and why should we care? There was a time when the immigrants of New York City’s Lower East Side—the Irish, the Poles, the Italians, the Russian Jews—were not white, but now “they” are. There was a time when the French-speaking working classes of Quebec were told to “speak white,” that is, to speak English. Whiteness is an allegorical category before it is demographic. This volume gathers together some of the most influential scholars of privilege and marginalization in philosophy, sociology, economics, psychology, literature, and history to examine the idea of whiteness. Drawing from their diverse racial backgrounds and national origins, these scholars weave their theoretical insights into essays critically informed by personal narrative. This approach, known as “braided narrative,” animates the work of award-winning author Eula Biss. Moved by Biss’s fresh and incisive analysis, the editors have assembled some of the most creative voices in this dialogue, coming together across the disciplines. Along with the editors, the contributors are Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, Nyla R. Branscombe, Drucilla Cornell, Lewis R. Gordon, Paget Henry, Ernest-Marie Mbonda, Peggy McIntosh, Mark McMorris, Marilyn Nissim-Sabat, Victor Ray, Lilia Moritz Schwarcz, Louise Seamster, Tracie L. Stewart, George Yancy, and Heidi A. Zetzer.

Race, nation, classe by Étienne BALIBAR,Immanuel WALLERSTEIN Summary

Ce livre, devenu un classique depuis sa première édition en 1988, est d'abord une contribution à la discussion d'un des plus graves problèmes de notre temps : pourquoi, soixante-dix ans après la défaite du nazisme, cinquante ans après la décolonisation et la reconnaissance des droits civiques aux Noirs américains, le racisme est-il en progression dans le monde ? La thèse soutenue ici est qu'il ne s'agit ni d'un épisode, ni d'une survivance, ni d'un préjugé, mais d'un rapport social indissociable des structures mêmes de ce monde : le complément intérieur de l'universalisme " bourgeois ". Ce livre est ensuite un dialogue entre deux auteurs, historien et philosophe, américain et français, chacun représentant à sa façon un courant et une expérience de rencontre entre la recherche théorique et l'activité militante. D'un texte à l'autre, les divergences se redistribuent, les convergences se dégagent en vue de l'analyse des conflits sociaux de demain, dans l'espace de la politique-monde où la crise de la forme nation s'accompagne de la flambée du nationalisme.

Les Confessions de Frannie Langton by Sara COLLINS Summary

Dans la lignée de Sarah Waters et de Margaret Atwood, Sara Collins signe un roman noir gothique saisissant, qui nous plonge, entre la Jamaïque et le Londres du XIX e siècle, dans une véritable épopée où se mêlent colonialisme, esclavage et racisme ; culpabilité, amour et rédemption. Esclave. Frannie Langton grandit à Paradise, dans une plantation de canne à sucre, où elle est le jouet de chacun : de sa maîtresse, qui se pique de lui apprendre à lire tout en la martyrisant, puis de son maître, qui la contraint à prendre part aux plus atroces expériences scientifiques... Domestique. À son arrivée à Londres, la jeune femme est offerte comme un vulgaire accessoire à George et Marguerite Benham, l'un des couples les plus raffinés d'Angleterre. Séductrice. Seule contre tous, Frannie trouve une alliée en Marguerite. Entre ces deux lectrices invétérées se noue un lien indéfectible. Une foudroyante passion. Une sulfureuse liaison. Meurtrière. Aujourd'hui, Frannie est accusée du double-meurtre des Benham. La foule se presse aux portes de la cour d'assises pour assister à son procès. Pourtant, de cette nuit tragique, elle ne garde aucun souvenir. Pour tenter de recouverer la mémoire, Frannie prend la plume... Victime ? Qui est vraiment Frannie Langton ?

L'importance et le succès durable de ce livre majeur du constructivisme tiennent à la place unique qu’il occupe dans l’histoire de la théorie sociale. L'ouvrage, présenté par D.

Théorie du drone by Grégoire Chamayou Summary

D’étranges oiseaux de métal sillonnent le ciel. Ils sont armés de missiles et tuent. Ceux qui les commandent ne sont pas à leur bord. Confortablement assis dans des salles climatisées à l’autre bout du monde, ils les pilotent par joysticks et écrans d’ordinateurs interposés. Ceci n’est plus de la science-fiction. Les drones, avions fantômes télécommandés, caméras létales volantes, sont devenus le fer de lance d’une nouvelle forme de pouvoir militaire hypertechnologisé. Aux États-Unis, où l’on forme aujourd’hui davantage d’opérateurs de drones que de pilotes classiques, les plans officiels prévoient de convertir, demain, la majeure partie des forces aériennes et, après-demain, des forces terrestres elles-mêmes, en engins robotisés. Le drone est l’instrument d’une violence à distance, où l’on peut voir sans être vu, toucher sans être touché, ôter des vies sans jamais risquer la sienne. C’est l’arme de combattants invisibles et invulnérables, seulement présents sur le champ de bataille par le spectacle de la dévastation qu’ils y impulsent, mais à jamais absents par leurs corps. C’est le bras armé de guerres asymétriques devenues opérations unilatérales, où la mort devient le privilège exclusif de l’ennemi. Au plan politique, c’est la solution trouvée aux contradictions de puissances impérialistes qui voyaient leur volonté d’intervention bornée par "l’aversion pour les pertes", réelle ou supposée, de leurs "opinions publiques".

The Persistence of Whiteness by Daniel Bernardi Summary

The Persistence of Whiteness investigates the representation and narration of race in contemporary Hollywood cinema. Ideologies of class, ethnicity, gender, nation and sexuality are central concerns as are the growth of the business of filmmaking. Focusing on representations of Black, Asian, Jewish, Latina/o and Native Americans identities, this collection also shows how whiteness is a fact everywhere in contemporary Hollywood cinema, crossing audiences, authors, genres, studios and styles. Bringing together essays from respected film scholars, the collection covers a wide range of important films, including Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, The Color Purple, Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings. Essays also consider genres from the western to blaxploitation and new black cinema; provocative filmmakers such as Melvin Van Peebles and Steven Spielberg and stars including Whoopi Goldberg and Jennifer Lopez. Daniel Bernardi provides an in-depth introduction, comprehensive bibliography and a helpful glossary of terms, thus providing students with an accessible and topical collection on race and ethnicity in contemporary cinema.

Race and Social Analysis by Caroline Knowles Summary

'This book is well researched and highly accessible. It is both a useful and much needed addition to the literature on race and social research' - Ethnic and Racial Studies 'The book is well laid out with glossaries of significant new terms and summaries of key points at the end of each chapter, extensive notes and a very useful bibliography. Knowle's book is a welcome contribution to our understanding, and its emphasis on social analysis helps to bridge what sometimes appears to be a widening gap between the academic and policy/practitioner communities. She provides some significant insights into the inter-relationships between everyday race/ethnicity making and contemporary political and theoretical understandings' - Runnymede's Quarterly Bulletin 'Knowles writes eloquently about how we can challenge and change racist ideas, and ideas about race...this is an important and enjoyable book, which would be valuable to academics or students of any discipline' - Sociological Research Online In Race and Social Analysis, Caroline Knowles combines biographical and spatial analysis to provide an up-to-date account of the ways race and ethnicity operate in a global context. The author argues that race and ethnicity is intricately woven into the social landscapes in which we live - encompassing both the mundane interactions of daily life and the ways in which the contemporary world is organized. Through social analysis, the book shows the ways in which we all contribute to race making and the forms of social inequality it produces. Drawing on the work of other authors in the field and extending it to provide some avenues into conceptualizing and researching race, Caroline Knowles examines: · how race and ethnicity operate in the social world · the making of race and ethnicity by the connections between people, spaces and places · the ways race and ethnicity articulate current analytical themes in social science such as space, movement and global networks · the ways in which broader structures of racial orders are apparent in everyday lives and the stories people tell about them · the ways in which places and spaces are raced and ethnicised · the ways in which race is significant in the operation of globalization and global migration · the making of whiteness Race and Social Analysis offers a grounded theoretical examination of race & ethnicity that draws upon examples in Britain, the United States, Canada and Australia. It offers a unique take on the available literature by adding a missing British account of `whiteness'.
