Title: Race in the 21st Century: Shifting Paradigms, Changing Conditions
Lead Author: Winant, Howard
Abstract: Important transformations are currently underway in both social scientific and "commonsense" understandings of race, at both national and global scales. These raise important and intriguing challenges for the social sciences. Despite decades of generally agreed-upon advances in both social scientific knowledge and the public sphere, no consensus or stabilization of meaning has been generated regarding the sociopolitical significance of race. Race remains a contested concept, generating competing claims about its relevance to such matters as individual capacity, legal and political rights, group identity and membership, and perhaps most important, about the causes and consequences of racial inequality, racial disparities in political power, and access along racial lines to political, social, and even human rights. The uncertainty about what race means today poses significant challenges for both social theory and democratic politics. Intellectually and practically, new approaches are required to understand emerging racial conditions, both in the US and around the world. A comprehensive and innovative approach to these problems is outlined here, based on a MultiCampus Research Program currently underway in the University of California.
