Whitening Race by Aileen Moreton-Robinson

Book Description

Whitening Race comes to fruition at a time in world history and global politics when questions about race require critical investigation and engagement. Since the 1990s international scholars have developed a powerful cultural critique by making whiteness an analytical object of research. Whiteness has become the invisible norm against which other races are judged in the construction of identity, representation, subjectivity, nationalism and the law. With its focus on Australia, the book engages with relations between migration, Indigenous dispossession and whiteness. It creates a new intellectual space that investigates the nature of racialised conditions and their role in reproducing colonising relations in Australia. Aileen Moreton-Robinson has brought together scholars from a range of disciplines: philosophy, cultural and gender studies, education, social work, sociology and literary studies. All engage critically with the location of the social and discursive construction of whiteness.

Sovereign Subjects by Aileen Moreton-Robinson Sovereign Subjects, Paperback (September 2007)

The rights of Australia's indigenous people are at a crossroads. Neo-liberal governments have reasserted their claim to land, and refuse to either negotiate with the indigenous owners or to make amends for damage done by dispossession. This title examines the implications for indigenous people of continuing to live in a state founded on invasion.

Talkin' up to the White Woman by Aileen Moreton-Robinson Talkin' up to the White Woman, Paperback (October 2000)

In this accessible and provocative analysis of the whiteness of Australian feminism the author applies academic training and cultural knowledge in revealing the invisible position of power and privilege in feminist practice. This is a uniquely Australian contribution to the increasing global discourse on feminism and race.
