Author of the pathbreaking work on créolité in Louisiana, White by Definition: Social Classification in Creole Louisiana (1986), Virginia R. Dominguez responds to the articles presented in the special dossier, "Créolité: Identity, History, Culture/Kreyòl: métissage, hybridité, bricolage." Her reflections situate articles by Jonathan Gosnell, Juliane Braun, and Angel Adams Parham in relation to the racial binary dominating Anglo-American history in the U.S., racism (old and new), the relevance of history to the present, and writers' and intellectuals' roles in fostering change for the better.
