An Ugly Word: Rethinking Race in Italy

Dr. Ann Morning, New York UniversityAnn Morning

The relevance of race for analyzing and combating social exclusion and stratification worldwide has been a subject of heated controversy. Based on interviews with young people in an aspiring “color-blind” Italy and a United States that has been called “race-obsessed,” we propose a framework for analyzing concepts of descent-based difference in comparative perspective that provides more flexible, detailed and precise measures of such beliefs than “race” or “ethnicity” offer.
