Dr. Sheena Mason (English Department) offers a three-part solution for how scholars and people aspiring toward anti-racism can avoid unintentionally upholding racism, using literary studies as a case study to show how “race” often translates into racism itself. Theory of Racelessness: A Case for Antirace(ism) (Palgrave 2022) presents a skeptical eliminativist philosophy of race and the theory of racelessness, a methodological and pedagogical framework for analyzing “race” and racism. The theory of racelessness is an imaginative and new future-making process rendered tangible in the here & now. The theory gives people the knowledge & tools they need to free themselves from racism, stopping it in its tracks so that more people fully embrace themselves outside of race(ism) & extend that grace to others.
