The Multiracial Experience: Racial Borders as the New Frontier

How might a multiracial concept dismantle our negative construction of race? How do we redefine ‘ethnicity’ when ‘race’ is less central to the definition? The Multiracial Experience challenges current theoretical and political conceptualizations of race using the multiracial experience of individuals as a tool for examining these and other questions. Each contribution opens with a personal sketch of the multiracial experience. Topics explored in the book include: the differences between race and ethnicity; colour, gender and sexuality in a multiracial context; and ethnicity and its role in identity formation.
