Panel discussion with Dartmouth faculty and featuring renowned author Roger Echo-Hawk
Beginning in the mid-20th century, adherents to race reshaped race by creating a social focus on racism, and the academic world confronted and slowly came to reject the idea of race as a useful description of humankind. Despite these truths, practitioners of race favor the continued making of race in the world. It is time to develop a conscious re-examination of old ideas about race, and to raise new questions. Is it possible to be non-racial in a society that believes in race? What do non-racial identities mean for social systems that flow out of race? And what role should race play in shaping the future?
