About this product
- DescriptionAdvances in genetics are renewing controversies over inherited characteristics, and the discourse around science and techlogical invations has taken on racial overtones, such as attributing inherited physiological traits to certain ethnic groups or using DNA testing to determine biological links with ethnic ancestry. This book contributes to the discussion by opening up previously locked concepts of the relation between the terms color, race, and Jews , and by engaging with globalism, multiculturalism, hybridity, and diaspora. The contributors - leading scholars in anthropology, sociology, history, literature, and cultural studies - discuss how it is t merely a question of whether Jews are ackwledged to be interracial, but how to address academic and social discourses that continue to place Jews and others in a race/color category.
