Abstract:

For this informal roundtable session, both panelists and participants will discuss color-blind practices of race and racism to reproduce hegemonic relations of power, oppression, and privilege. Specifically, we will discuss the following questions: what is the colorblind ideology? What are contemporary forms of race and racism? How are historical continuums of racial formation taking place in the United States? Answering these questions, we will explore the performative sustainability of race and racism in the contemporary context of intercultural communication. Audience participation is strongly encouraged.
