How can we make sense of race in Europe? In public discourse, race is understood as an outdated concept and as a reminiscence of a past that has been overcome. Drawing on intersectional feminist theory and a rich selection of examples from political and cultural discourse, Race in Post-Racial Europe provides a unique insight into how gender and racial inequalities are maintained through the claim of being beyond them.
Stefanie C. Boulila is an associated expert at the Center for Intersectional Justice.

Editorial Reviews

In this book Stefanie C. Boulila makes a persuasive and compelling argument: we need the analytical category of race to explain the post-racial imaginary. Informed by a sustained engagement with Black feminist and feminist of colour thought, this book shows us the value of intersectionality and other terms that are often dismissed because they are dangerous. Boulila's new book will become a key text in what she calls "a growing archive of unruly knowledge."
