Silence About Race ? : Reconfigurations of Racism in Contemporary Europe
Racial semantics are shifting in Europe, race is coded in multiple ways, and the defense of naturalized privilege is regularly raised to preempt accusations of racism. The ability to identify racism as a particular kind of power formation has become complicated. This volumeexamines the relation of race to the operation of social power within particular contexts and the critical purchase and effectiveness of analytical concepts of racism. It combines conceptual reflections with case studies exploring the diverse ways racism is discussed in European countries today.
