The Multiracial Experience
Racial Borders as the New Frontier

Edited by:

Other Titles in:
Psychology (General)

January 1996 | 512 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
How might a multiracial concept dismantle our negative construction of race? How do we redefine `ethnicity' when `race' is less central to the definition? The Multiracial Experience challenges current theoretical and political conceptualizations of race using the multiracial experience of individuals as a tool for examining these and other questions. Each contribution opens with a personal sketch of the multiracial experience. Topics explored in the book include: the differences between race and ethnicity; colour, gender and sexuality in a multiracial context; and ethnicity and its role in identity formation.
