Resonances of Slavery in Race/Gender Relations: Shadow at the Heart of American Politics

Jane Flax | Resonances of Slavery in Race/Gender Relations: Shadow at the Heart of American Politics

In a provocative and insightful exposition, Jane Flax posits that Americans have never properly mourned slavery and its lingering effects on American subjects and politics.  Using an interdisciplinary approach, the book shows that a reciprocal relationship exists between unconscious processes and race/gender domination and that unless we attend to these unconscious processes, no adequate remedy for the malignant consequences of our current race/gender practices and relations can be devised. Wide-ranging, Flax supports her arguments using a variety of sources, including psychoanalytic theory, feminist theory, political theory, Michel Foucault’s writings, Obama’s books and speeches, critical race theory, data on race/gender disparities, and analysis of contemporary films.
