Center for Critical Race Studies Resident Speaker

Photograph of Dr. Cooper Increasingly, academics who study race charge themselves and others to move "beyond the Black/White binary," when thinking about contemporary operations of race and racism. This talk considers what calls for transcending or moving beyond the binary mean. It seems to mean in many cases that folks are tired of talking about blackness, but never tired of talking about whiteness. Thus this talk drives to the heart of these debates, to understand what we really mean when we say we are "post-racial," and how debates over the continued usefulness of intersectionality are implicated in the project of transcending Black identity.

At the heart of CHSS is the value placed on the diversity of humanity and a belief in education as the foundation of an empowered, free, and engaged citizenry capable of individual creativity and social responsibility. Faculty members demonstrate and students develop this capacity through multiple disciplinary perspectives: historical and theoretical inquiry, quantitative and critical/qualitative analysis, and creative cultural production.
