Introduction: Intersecting whiteness, interdisciplinary debates

Conway, Daniel and Steyn, Melissa (2010). Introduction: Intersecting whiteness, interdisciplinary debates. Ethnicities, 10(3) pp. 283–291.



This article sets out the purview of this special issue of Ethnicities. Whiteness Studies has moved from the margins and has become an accepted focus for study in Critical Race Studies. We argue that current scholarship is developing the paradigm empirically and theoretically, and does so without need to justify its approach. This special issue incorporates a number of national and transnational contexts, is located in a number of disciplines and theoretical approaches, and develops the intersections between whiteness and gender, queer studies, migration, nationalism and militarization.
