Abstract:

Stuart Hall, a renowned public speaker and teacher, presents a lecture on race and the meaning of racial signifiers (e.g., skin color) at Goldsmiths' College, New Cross, London. Weaving a compelling argument that includes a critical engagement with the work of Anthony Appiah and W.E.B. Du Bois, Hall concludes that because the meaning of race is never fixed but is dependent upon cultural context, it can be described as a "floating signifier." Begins with an interview of Hall by Sut Jhally.
