Writing and Race, Paperback / softback Book

Writing and Race Paperback / softback

Part of the Crosscurrents series


Writing and Race brings together specially commissioned essays by new and established authors from a range of disciplines.

Texts are drawn from subjects and genres that include philosophy, politics, anthropology, sexuality, travel, fiction and autobiography.

Through a time-span from Ancient Greece to the present day, and a geographical coverage from Australia and Europe to the Caribbean and the United States, the collection investigates the importance of place, moment, cultural formation and subject identity in racial representation.

A substantial introduction establishes the connections between the essays and lucidly summarizes recent thinking on race, explaining in particular the relevance of debates about ethnography. Accessible and stimulating, Writing and Race is a multidisciplinary collection that will be of interest to students, researchers, and lecturers who study or are interested in race.

The essays represent a variety of critical approaches, thus allowing the reader to compare and contrast the benefits of each approach.

Extracts of some of the texts that are discussed are included along with an extensive bibliography to encourage further study.
