VT Reads 2019- History of Race
Sunday 22 September 2019, 02:00pm
Hits : 68

Professor William Edelglass will trace the intellectual history of the concept of race in the West, from its prehistory to today as we kick off the VT Reads 2019 books of "March" by John Lewis and "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee. The first European to divide the peoples of the world into distinct races, in the seventeenth century, claimed that the Sami people of northern Scandinavia were one of four races on earth; Native Americans, Europeans, South Asians, and North Africans together were considered a second race. How did such a bizarre distinction among groups of people develop into one of the most historically significant ideas of the modern world?
