Abstract:

"For years scholars engaged in contesting dominant narratives of nationhood have faced a key challenge: the need to define Canada as an official 'multicultural' society that has moved beyond its racialized origins in the genocide of Aboriginal peoples and the subjugation of 'non-preferred races.' In The States of Race, drawing upon interdisciplinary areas of research, nine contributors examine the current state of critical race and anti-colonial feminist scholarship both in Canada and globally. The book considers the racialized discursive practices and socio-political institutions that shape globalization and imperialism, media representations, academic debates, solidarity initiatives between Indigenous peoples and people of colour, and transnational activism for social justice."--Publisher.
