By Sherene Razack, Malinda Smith and Sunera Thobani, editors
Critical race feminism, like critical race theory more broadly, interrogates questions about race and gender through an emancipatory lens—and in doing so poses fundamental questions about the persistence if not magnification of race and the "colour line" in the twenty-first century.
The articles in this dynamic collection explore campus politics around issues of equity and examine the media's circulation of ideas about a tolerant multicultural and feminist Canada. They consider security practices that confine people of colour to spaces of exception, Indigenous women's navigation of both nationalism and feminism, and Western feminist responses to the War on Terror. They look at the new forms of whiteness that persist in ideas about a post-racial world or in transnational movements for social justice. Throughout, the writers insist that we must study racialized power in all its gender and class dimensions.
