Race, Culture and Difference

£19.99

Product description

Blending cultural studies and political analysis, this interdisciplinary text aims to both illuminate and move forward debates over "race" and its meanings in contemporary society and in educational and social policy. How is the concept "race" produced and sustained within society? How do notions of "us" and "them", "inclusion" and "exclusion", "centre" and "margin" originate and operate? The book insists on the centrality of culture to an understanding of "race", although not in the essentialist version of either the old multiculturalism or the "new racism". Linking up in fascinating ways with feminist, post-structuralist and postmodernist concerns in recent social and cultural theory, it examines the contribution of ideas such as "ethnicity", "community", "identity" and "difference". The authors present sympathetic critique of the organized forms of antiracism that have come to dominate educational policy. Their approaches also being to define an alternative agenda sensitive both to the problems and the possibilities of difference. Published for the Open University for a course entitled 'Race', Education and Society. Cover photograph commissioned from David Bailey and Sonia Boyce for the Black Markets exhibition of 1990. Ex-lib stamps on last page and contents page. Good, clean copy.
