Zizek on Race : Toward an Anti-Racist Future

Slavoj ®i¾ek`s prolific comments on anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, scapegoating, popular nationalism, the refugee crisis, Eurocentrism, the War on Terror, neocolonialism, global justice, and rioting comprise a dizzying array of thinking. But what can we pull out of his various writings and commentaries on race in the contemporary world? Is there anything approaching a ®i¾ekian philosophy of race?

Zahi Zalloua argues here that there is and that the often polemical style of ®i¾ek`s pronouncements shouldn`t undermine the importance and urgency of his work in this area. Zalloua not only examines ®i¾ek`s philosophy of race but addresses the misconceptions that have arisen and some of the perceived shortcomings in his work to date. ®i¾ek on Race also puts ®i¾ek in dialogue with critical race and anti-colonial studies, dwelling on the sparks struck up by this dialogue and the differences, gaps, and absences it points up. Engaging ®i¾ek`s singular contribution to the analysis of race and racism, ®i¾ek on Race both patiently interrogates and critically extends his direct comments on the topic, developing more fully the potential of his thought.

In a response to the book, ®i¾ek boldly reaffirms his theoretical stance, clarifying further his often difficult-to-work-out positions on some of his more controversial pronouncements.
