Faculty Book: Linda Martín Alcoff
Mariana Ortega and Linda Martín Alcoff, eds.
Constructing the Nation
(SUNY Press, 2009)
This volume collects theoretical analyses that address the racial issues of U.S. nationalism. Since the events of 9/11, the invocation of a united “American” identity has implicit specifications of race, ethnicity, culture of origin, and religion. This collection of essays offers a philosophical response to, and rumination on, the political and cultural context of xenophobia and the rhetoric of freedom, homeland, and unity. Linda Alcoff (Prof., GC) is on the doctoral faculty in philosophy.
