Raça como tecnologia

Nicholaos Jones, Holly Jones



As tecnologias de Cyborg e próteses enquadram abordagens pós-humanistas proeminentes para entender a natureza da raça. Mas esses quadros lutam para acomodar os fenômenos da passagem racial e da estacionança racial, e sua orientação pós-humanista encobre distinções úteis entre os seres humanos racializados e seus contextos sociais. Defendemos, em vez disso, uma abordagem humanista da raça, entendendo a hierarquia racial como uma tecnologia industrial. Nossa abordagem acomoda a passagem racial e a estacionararia. Integra toda uma série de pesquisas em todas as disciplinas. Também é útil distinguir entre os motivos da racialização e condições que facilitam os impactos dessa racialização.
