Re-Orienting Whiteness: Transnaitonal Perspectives on the History of an Identity

Book


Abstract


  • This book brings together historians from the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe to historicize constructions of whiteness as a colonial formation. The essays examine how this racial category traveled around the routes of empire. A transnational focus brings historical and spatial specificity to the field and re-orients the frames of whiteness for American and non-American scholars alike.
