The Erotic Life of Racism

The Erotic Life of Racism by Sharon Patricia Holland
English | Apr. 13, 2012 | ISBN: 0822352060 | 184 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

A major intervention in the fields of critical race theory, black feminism, and queer theory, The Erotic Life of Racism contends that theoretical and political analyses of race have largely failed to understand and describe the profound ordinariness of racism and the ways that it operates as a quotidian practice. If racism has an everyday life, how does it remain so powerful and yet mask its very presence? To answer this question, Sharon Patricia Holland moves into the territory of the erotic, understanding racism's practice as constitutive to the practice of racial being and erotic choice.
