“Race in Translation is a masterpiece, an extraordinarily bold and brilliant book rich with erudition and insight. The imaginative and in-depth analyses of intercultural conflicts and coalescences offer original and generative answers to the most important questions haunting contemporary scholarship and civic life.”
—George Lipsitz, author of How Racism Takes Place
"A deeply researched, provocative synthesis of the ways in which race has been conceptualized in Brazil, United States and France. Arguing that ‘All nations are transnations,’ the authors explore the ‘Red,’ ‘Black’ and ‘White’ Atlantic, tracking the circulation of ideas and their translation. In doing so, they critically address both the rightist and leftist blindness to race. This is a balanced, thoughtful and clearly written work that should be used widely in university classrooms."
—Francoise Verges, Goldsmiths College, London
“This transnational analysis makes Race in Translation an eye-opening, paradigm-shifting resource for numerous fields…Stam and Shohat offer a rich, triangular and new transatlantic framework linking national spaces too often analyzed in isolation. This marco-level endeavor arches over a wide array of exciting, insightful analyses that draw unexpected connections and open new pathways for future research.”
