Reconsidering Race

Social Science Perspectives on Racial Categories in the Age of Genomics

Edited by Kazuko Suzuki, Diego A. von Vacano, and Preface by Henry Louis Gates, Jr

  • Provides a direct engagement of social-scientific perspectives on race with recent developments in genomics that use racial/ethnic terminologies in medical research
  • Includes perspectives that go outside the US context and beyond traditional Western paradigms of race
  • Incorporates multiple disciplines to generate cross-disciplinary dialogues to move forward in the social-scientific project of understanding "race" better
  • Sheds light on contemporary concerns that involve race, such as identity formation, ethno-political conflict, immigration policy, social justice, biomedical ethics, and the carceral state
