9781934691991: Anthropology of Race: Genes, Biology, and Culture (School for Advanced Research Advanced Seminar Series)

What do we know about race today? After years of debate and inquiry by anthropologists, the question remains fraught with emotion and the answer remains complicated and uncertain. Anthropology of Race confronts the challenge of formulating an effective rejoinder to new arguments and new data about race, and attempts to address the intense desire to understand race and why it matters.

About the Author:

John Hartigan Jr. is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Texas, Austin. He is the author of Racial Situations: Class Predicaments of Whiteness in Detroit.

Review:

Anthropology of Race examines the often disregarded intersectionality of genes, biology, and culture in the formation of race. With bold and innovative analysis, the authors challenge us to consider and then reconsider its biosocial and biocultural foundations. This volume creatively adds to the field a complex and provocative interpretation of the anthropology of race. --Lee D. Baker, Duke University

Mukhopadyay and Moses urged anthropologists in the 1990s to look at the biocultural model as a way to unravel the racial paradigm in the United States. This exceptional, innovative, and carefully crafted volume follows that tradition and takes the notion of the biocultural model to a whole new theoretical and empirical level. It is a timely and very important volume for anthropology and for our society. --Yolanda T. Moses, UC Riverside

A must-read for scientists and medical practitioners, this volume builds on the vitally important humanistic and social scientific work interrogating racial processes to deconstruct the popular categories that animate our understanding of human difference. --Deborah A. Thomas, University of Pennsylvania

Race is a complex subject...and this book makes a good start in formulating ways to continue a dialogue within anthropology and across other disciplines. --John H. Relethford, American Journal of Human Biology

Hartigan and the contributors to this volume illustrate clearly some of the conflicting and diverse ways in which race is conceived and employed as a thing and a process, and ultimately, the work the different ways of knowing race does in science, health care, and everyday life.... This volume is useful for anyone interested in a rich biocultural mix of insights into race today. --Alan H. Goodman, Journal of Anthropological Research, vol. 71, 2015

Book Description SAR Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. What do we know about race today? Is it surprising that after a hundred years of debate and inquiry by anthropologists, the answer not only remains uncertain but the very question is so fraught? In part, this reflects the deep investments modern societies have made in the concept of race. We can hardly know it objectively when it comprises a pervasive aspect of our identities and social landscapes, determining advantage and disadvantage in a thoroughgoing manner. Yet know it we do-perhaps mistakenly, haphazardly, or too informally, but knowledge claims about race permeate everyday life in the United States. In addition, what we understand or assume about race changes as our practices of knowledge production also change. Until recently, a consensus held among social scientists-predicated, in part, upon findings by geneticists in the 1970s about the structure of human genetic variability-that race is socially constructed. In the early 2000s, following the successful sequencing of the human genome, a series of counter-claims challenging the social construction consensus was formulated by some geneticists who sought to support the role of genes in explaining race. This volume arises out of the fracturing of that consensus and the attendant recognition that asserting a constructionist stance is no longer a tenable or sufficient response to the surge of knowledge claims about race. Contributors: Ron Eglash, Clarence C. Gravlee, John Hartigan, Linda M. Hunt, Kuzawa W. Kuzawa, Sandra Soo-Jin Lee, Jeffrey C. Long, Pamela L. Sankar, Zaneta M. Thayer, Nicole Truesdell.
