Why the Humanities Matter for Race Studies Today

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The article discusses language in dealing with transformation of racial orders and the study of race in the humanities. The author states that a problem in developing "race" language is that the content of racial, gender, and sexual identities has been transformed over the years so that racialized realities no longer exist. The author states that the sociological study of race affects the disciplinary and interdisciplinary studies of race.
