This anthology is an interdisciplinary collection of essays that builds on the presentations from a conference on race held at Bucknell University that addressed the issue of the persistence of race in the new millennium. These essays all deal with various critical dimensions of race from a sociological, anthropological, and literary perspective. The essays engage with history, either textually, materially, or with respect to identity, in an effort to demonstrate that these discourses about race are still relevant and still central to everyday experiences. The chapters are mainly about U.S. race relations but in some cases the analysis extends beyond national boundaries. The volume disabuses any notion of color blindness and affirms the position that race still matters in America and beyond.
