"Whiteness and Health in Transnational Context"


Published on

Despite almost two decades of research in the field of whiteness studies, there remains relatively little literature that explores the myriad connections between whiteness and health in the U.S. context. However, scholars working within a transnational, postcolonial framework have begun the work of “re-orienting whiteness” within a more global lens and, within this field, a portion of the work is concerned with how discourses, taxonomies, and technologies of science, health and medicine are used to do the work of whiteness and nation-building in English-speaking countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and former British colonies along the Pacific Rim
