Bearing witness to whiteness

Elaine Laforteza

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/WebsiteArticle

Abstract

This article argues that whiteness is a system of representation that produces specific discourses of power and knowledge that deploy racialised spaces and bodily movements. I use North America as the focus of this analysis to examine the systematic operation of whiteness as a discursive and legislative authority in daily life.
