Summary "A collection of essays weaving together theoretical insights from philosophy, sociology, economics, psychology, literature, and history, as well as the authors' personal narratives, to examine the forms and persistence of white privilege"--Provided by publisher.
"Who is white, and why should we care? There was a time when the immigrants of New York City's Lower East Side--the Irish, the Poles, the Italians, the Russian Jews--were not white, but now "they" are. There was a time when the French-speaking working classes of Quebec were told to "speak white," that is, to speak English. Whiteness is an allegorical category before it is demographic. This volume gathers together some of the most influential scholars of privilege and marginalization in philosophy, sociology, economics, psychology, literature, and history to examine the idea of whiteness. Drawing from their diverse racial backgrounds and national origins, these scholars weave their theoretical insights into essays critically informed by personal narrative. This approach, known as "braided narrative," animates the work of award-winning author Eula Biss. Moved by Biss's fresh and incisive analysis, the editors have assembled some of the most creative voices in this dialogue, coming together across the disciplines."--Publisher's description.
