racialized boundaries, race, nation and the anti-racist struggle

  1. 1. “RACIALIZED BOUNDARIES; RACE, NATION, AND THE ANTI-RACIST STRUGGLE” FLOYA ANTHIAS AND NIRA YUVAL-DAVIS A PRESENTATION BY ISABELLA FEW AND ROHINI KAHRS
  2. 2. SCALES OF RACISM INDIVIDUAL racist attacks, group based exclusions INSTITUTIONAL prison/education/work STRUCTURAL slavery/apartheid/colonialism/genocide – intrinsic to the fabric of society
  3. 3. RACISM AS AN IDEOLOGY Racism is a social construct which has no standing on biological differences but rests on the context of racial differentiations within a social climate All modern racism resides on socio- historical and cultural systems, e.g. colonialism
  4. 4. “In the case of race … this is always grounded on the separation of human populations by some notion of stock or collective heredity of traits” Racism is constructed from historical events, and acts as a way of reinforcing negative stereotypes about certain populations based on historical claims which were made to normalise social structures like slavery
  5. 5. ETHNICITY • A form of classification on the basis of cultural affiliations and practices • Has always been a means through which racial processes and thought have operated • This idea is socially and politically constructed, and overlaps with the construction of race as they both involve “social construction of an origin as a basis for community or collectivity” E.g. Irish, Jews, Latinas
  6. 6. ETHNOS, ETHNICITY AND NATIONALISM “Historically, ethnic, national or racial categories have been formed in various ways, through conquests, colonisation and immigration, and of course the modern variants of these categories under the sway of capitalism and imperialism” E.g. Israel, prosecution of Jews in Nazi Germany, cultural integration and the preservation of “whiteness”
  7. 7. ETHNIC, GENDER AND CLASS DIVISION “All three divisions involve differential access to resources and processes of exclusion and inclusion, and at times oppression and domination” Race falls under more general categories and should be understood within other social issues, for instance the difference in opportunity of a white woman and a black man, both could be limited but one more than the other.
