In this brilliantly combative examine, Robyn Wiegman demanding situations modern clichés approximately race and gender, a formula that's itself a cliché wanting wondering. As a part of what she calls her "feminist disloyalty," she turns a serious, even skeptical, eye on present debates approximately multiculturalism and "difference" whereas at the same time exposing the numerous ways that white racial supremacy has been reconfigured because the institutional death of segregation. so much of all, she examines the hypocrisy and contradictoriness of over a century of narratives that posit Anglo-Americans as heroic brokers of racism’s decline. even if assessing Uncle Tom’s Cabin, lynching, Leslie Fiedler’s racialist mapping of the yankee novel, the Black strength flow of the 60s, 80s blood brother motion pictures, or the novels of Richard Wright and Toni Morrison, Wiegman unflinchingly confronts the paradoxes of either racism and antiracist agendas, together with these complex from a feminist perspective.
American Anatomies takes the lengthy view: What epistemological frameworks allowed the West, from the Renaissance ahead, to schematize racial and gender variations and to create social hierarchies in accordance with those adjustments? How have these epistemological regimes changed—and now not changed—over time? the place are we now? With painstaking care, political ardour, and highbrow bold, Wiegman analyzes the organic and cultural bases of racial and gender bias which will reinvigorate the dialogue of identification politics. She concludes that, for terribly diverse purposes, identification proves to be harmful to minority and majority alike.
