White Backlash and the Politics of Multiculturalism

White Backlash And The Politics Of Multiculturalism [Pdf/ePub] eBook

White Backlash and the Politics of Multiculturalism by Roger Hewitt Book Resume:

The murder of Stephen Lawrence led to the widest review of institutional racism seen in the UK. Sections of the white working-class communities in south London near to the scene of the murder, however, displayed deep hostility to the equalities and multiculturalist practice of the local state and other agencies. Drawing on extensive ethnographic research, this book relates these phenomena to the 'backlash' to multiculturalism evident during the 1990s in the USA, Australia, Canada, the UK and other European countries. It examines these within the unfolding social and political responses to race equalities in the UK and the USA from the 1960s to the present in the context of changes in social class and national political agendas. This book is unique in linking a detailed study of a community at a time of its critical importance to national debates over racism and multiculturalism, to historically wider international economic and social trends.

The Multiculturalism Backlash

White Backlash And The Politics Of Multiculturalism [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Multiculturalism Backlash by Steven Vertovec,Susanne Wessendorf Book Resume:

In a relatively short time, many European governments have been purposefully dropping the notion ‘multicultural’ or other references to cultural diversity in their policy vocabularies. More and more politicians and public intellectuals have criticized a perceived shift towards ‘too much diversity’. This volume goes beyond the conventional approaches to the topic offering a careful examination of not only the social conditions and political questions surrounding multiculturalism but also the recent emergence of a ‘backlash’ against multicultural initiatives, programmes and infrastructures. Featuring case-study based contributions from leading experts throughout Europe and North America, this multidisciplinary work seeks to assess some of these key questions with reference to recent and current trends concerning multiculturalism, cultural diversity and integration in their respective countries, evaluating questions such as Is there is a common ‘sceptical turn’ against cultural diversity or a ‘backlash against difference’ sweeping Europe? How have public discourses impacted upon national and local diversity management and migration policies? Are the discourses and policy shifts actually reflected in everyday practices within culturally, linguistically and religiously diverse settings? The Multiculturalism Backlash provides new insights, informed reflections and comparative analyses concerning these significant processes surrounding politics, policy, public debates and the place of migrants and ethnic minorities within European societies today. Focusing on the practice and policy of multiculturalism from a comparative perspective this work will be of interest to scholars from a wide range of disciplines including migration, anthropology and sociology.

De l'invisibilité à l'islamophobie

White Backlash And The Politics Of Multiculturalism [Pdf/ePub] eBook

De l'invisibilité à l'islamophobie by Olivier Esteves Book Resume:

Principalement issus du sous-continent indien, les premiers migrants musulmans de Grand-Bretagne ont d'abord été attirés par une prospérité en trompe-l'il, celle d'une nation industrielle en déclin. Très vite leurs enfants ont été confrontés au chômage massif et à la remise en cause de l'État providence. Se sentant, comme ailleurs en Europe, à la fois étrangers aux traditions culturelles de leurs parents et rejetés par la majorité blanche britannique, certains dentre eux ont été tentés par un retour aux traditions islamiques, par le militantisme politique, voire par l'extrémisme.L'expérience britannique d'événements tels que le scandale des Versets sataniques (1989), lopposition à la guerre en Irak (2003) ou encore les attentats de Londres (2005), mais aussi les violences urbaines, lévolution des discriminations raciales ou religieuses, les discours politiques ou médiatiques islamophobes, la force du white backlash, les débats sur les questions déducation, de représentativité des minorités dans lespace public peuvent, au-delà des oppositions rituelles entre "modèle français" et "modèle britannique" dimmigration, aider à réfléchir au cas français.Islamisme, terrorisme, communautarisme autant de mots devenus peu à peu synonymes, notamment depuis septembre 2001 et les attentats de Londres en juillet 2005. Cest tout l'intérêt du livre dOlivier Esteves que de montrer le parallèle entre trajectoires postcoloniales françaises et anglaises, et daller au-delà de schémas médiatiques simplistes où "tout ce qui est modéré à Londres serait considéré comme extrême à Paris".

The Politics of Multiculturalism

White Backlash And The Politics Of Multiculturalism [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Politics of Multiculturalism by Ben Pitcher Book Resume:

"What does racism look like in the twenty-first century? Why does it continue to blight our societies when it is so widely rejected, and how do we combat racist practices when dominant social actors and institutions embrace the language of diversity and cultural difference? This book provides an original and innovative response to these questions. Taking as a case study the racial politics of the British state under New Labour, Ben Pitcher advances an idea of multiculturalism as the only conceptual framework that is capable of making sense of the contradictions of contemporary race practice, where racism is simultaneously rejected and reproduced. From explorations of the politics of nationalism to multiculturalism and the War on Terror, this book is a wide-ranging investigation of some of the most urgent and controversial issues of our times. Introduction: The Politics of Multiculturalism Understanding the Politics of Multiculturalism Black in the Union Jack: The Britishness Project Multiculturalism, Community and 'the White Working Class' Multicultural Conflicts: The 'Feminist' State On the Islamic Question: Multicultural Nationalism and the War on Terror Conclusion: Multiculturalism Beyond 'The Death of Multiculturalism' Notes References Index BEN PITCHER teaches Sociology and Cultural studies at Middlesex University, University of East London and London South Bank, UK."--Publisher's website.

That's Racist!

White Backlash And The Politics Of Multiculturalism [Pdf/ePub] eBook

That's Racist! by Adrian Hart Book Resume:

Twenty-first century British kids are more comfortable with ethnic diversity than ever before. The 'mixed race' population is rising exponentially. In school playgrounds across Britain, kids are inventing a version of colour-blind, multi-ethnic interaction that should teach the adult world a thing or two - not least about the amazing, superdiverse generation that is to come. And yet, for over a decade, playgrounds and classrooms have endured unprecedented interference in the form of official racist-incident reporting, training on the importance of racial etiquette, and the reinforcement of racial identities. Such interference is viewed by modern day anti-racists as a necessary bulwark against the creeping influence of the far-right, 'Islamophobia', and more generally the supposed covert racism of the wider population. Many official policy documents written under the influence of this approach insist a failure to tackle racist behaviour at the earliest age will allow racism to incubate and grow. Here, 'racism' is something defined by the notion of what constitutes hate speech or wounding words. Often it can be detected from an entirely innocent phrase, so long as the phrase is perceived by the offence-taker or another party or policy as 'racist'. This mindset has, in recent years, permeated public discourse on the subject. Evidence of racism - such as a gaffe by a politician or celebrity, or a footballer's on-pitch insult - is always 'the tip of iceberg' (the moment that racist society breaks the surface and is revealed to all). The idea of a hidden mass of racists in our midst explains the advent of a racism-watch approach that turns up the attenuator and trawls the nooks and crannies of everyday life for tell-tale signs. Moreover, PC anti-racism synthesises many of today's worst cultural trends: the erosion of free speech and of adult moral authority; the elevation of victimhood and of identity politics (particularly the reinstatement of racial identity); the misanthropic view of rotten, vulnerable humanity (where the state becomes purifier); the cult of child protection and the emergence of a degraded and vulgar conception of child development. It is with some irony, then, that modern day anti-racism can be argued as having taken over from old-fashioned racism as the dominant racialising force in British society.

Black and Indigenous Resistance in the Americas

White Backlash And The Politics Of Multiculturalism [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Black and Indigenous Resistance in the Americas by Juliet Hooker Book Resume:

Black and Indigenous Resistance in the Americas is an essential roadmap to understanding contemporary racial politics across the Americas, where openly white supremacist politics are on the rise. It is the product of a multiyear, transnational research project by the Anti-racist Research and Action Network of the Americas in collaboration with resistance movements confronting racial retrenchment in Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, and the United States. How did we get here? And what anti-racist strategies are equal to the dire task of confronting resurgent racism? This volume provides powerful answers to these pressing questions. 1) It traces the making and contestation of state-led racial projects in response to black and indigenous mobilization during an era of expansion of multicultural rights in the context of neoliberal capitalism. 2) It identifies the origins and manifestations of the backlash against hard-fought (but hardly far-reaching) gains by marginalized peoples, showing that (contrary to critiques of “identity politics”) the losses and anxieties produced by the failures of neoliberalism have been understood in racial terms. 3) It distills a path forward for progressive anti-racist activism in the Americas that looks beyond state-centered, rights-seeking strategies and instead situates a critique of racial capitalism as central to the contestation of white supremacy.

Combining an analysis of the construction of national identity in both past and present-day public culture, with interviews with white Canadians, The House of Difference explores how ideas of racial and cultural difference are articulated in colonial and national projects, and in the subjectivities of people who consider themselves mainstream, or simply Canadian-Canadians.

White Backlash And The Politics Of Multiculturalism [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Whitewash by John Gabriel Book Resume:

By putting the language used in television, the radio, the internet and press, as well as that spoken by key leaders, under the spotlight, what is ultimately revealed is the existence of a 'white' language, both coded and overt. Taking specific examples and presenting new factual evidence, John Gabriel studies the racial politics that lie behind much of the communication in the public arena. Case studies draw on contemporary political controversies and are used to explore the relationship between racialised forms of media discourse and political and economic change.
