Book excerpt: In White Innocence Gloria Wekker explores a central paradox of Dutch culture: the passionate denial of racial discrimination and colonial violence coexisting alongside aggressive racism and xenophobia. Accessing a cultural archive built over 400 years of Dutch colonial rule, Wekker fundamentally challenges Dutch racial exceptionalism by undermining the dominant narrative of the Netherlands as a "gentle" and "ethical" nation. Wekker analyzes the Dutch media's portrayal of black women and men, the failure to grasp race in the Dutch academy, contemporary conservative politics (including gay politicians espousing anti-immigrant rhetoric), and the controversy surrounding the folkloric character Black Pete, showing how the denial of racism and the expression of innocence safeguards white privilege. Wekker uncovers the postcolonial legacy of race and its role in shaping the white Dutch self, presenting the contested, persistent legacy of racism in the country.

Download Archipiélagos Literarios Del Caribe in PDF by Ottmar Ette Full Book and published by Peter Lang Pub Incorporated. This book was released on 2008 with total page 165 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Space can best be defined not by looking at borders and territories but, rather, by focussing on movements of crossing and re-crossing. Today, the horizons of traditional Area Studies have to be opened up by innovative TransArea Studies which generate a new vision of entangled and connected histories and multi-, inter- and transcultural developments. The vectorization of all kinds of knowledge is on the agenda: the movements of the past are still present in the movements of today. Could there be a better field for this theoretical shift than the Caribbean, one of the outstanding producers of cultural and literary theories of our time? The articles gathered in this volume accept the challenge of portraying the Caribbean(s) on the Move and of rethinking the Caribbean from the standpoint of its world-wide mobile cultural networks. Un espacio puede ser definido de la manera más adecuada focalizando sus movimientos cruzados y entrecruzados y no desde el ángulo de sus fronteras y territorios. El horizonte de los Estudios de Área tradicionales deberá ampliarse en la actualidad por medio de los innovadores Estudios Transareales, para generar así una nueva visión de historias entrelazadas y conectadas, así como una nueva perspectiva de los desarrollos multi-, inter- y transculturales. Está presente aquí la vectorización de todos los tipos de saberes: los movimientos del pasado signen vigentes en los movimientos de hoy. ¿Habrá un espacio más idóneo para este desplazamiento teórico que el Caribe, verdadero surtidor te teorías culturales y literarias? Los artículos reunidos en este libro se han propuesto la difícil tarea de perfilar los archipiélagos literarios del Caribe y de repensar el Caribe desde el punto de vista de sus redes culturales globales y móviles.
