The End of Diversity

The End of Diversity In this essay, the author suggests that diversity as an idea has reached its logical end. The essay proposes that something more radical and sustaining than diversity is now required if whiteness is to be understood as the foundation and barrier that preempts nonwhite others from the structural arrangements that currently govern human life. In arguing that diversity is over, the essay seeks to grapple with the structural limits of our desires for an inclusive society in which foundational antiblackness continues to shape Canadian and more broadly North American regimes of power and belonging. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Public Culture Duke University Press

Abstract

In this essay, the author suggests that diversity as an idea has reached its logical end. The essay proposes that something more radical and sustaining than diversity is now required if whiteness is to be understood as the foundation and barrier that preempts nonwhite others from the structural arrangements that currently govern human life. In arguing that diversity is over, the essay seeks to grapple with the structural limits of our desires for an inclusive society in which foundational antiblackness continues to shape Canadian and more broadly North American regimes of power and belonging.
