Race, Racism, and Empire: Reflections on Canada

Price $12.95; read the abstracts.

Vol. 32, No. 4 (2005)

This special issue of Social Justice, guest edited by Enakshi Dua, Narda Razack, and Jody Nyasha, focuses attention on the unique manner in which race, racism, and empire are articulated in the Canadian context. Currents in Canadian critical race scholarship include theorizing the relationship between race, racism, anti-racism and empire; exploring transnational processes in the construction of "race" and racism; and reflecting on the re-articulation of "race" and racism in Canada in the post-September 11 period as it has been shaped by local and transnational forces. Articles point to Canada’s involvement in post-September 11 militarization, framed in terms of a "clash of civilizations." Other essays uncover the way in which the construction of Canada as a national space, with an attendant national identity, has been tied to a transnational discourse of whiteness, as well as the ways in which transnational processes shape diasporic identities.
