Contingencies of Whiteness: Conversation with American Studies & History Professor Matthew Jacobson

The NYU Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation (OGI) hosted a conversation with Dr. Matthew Frye Jacobson — William Robertson Coe Professor of American Studies and History, Professor of African American Studies at Yale University — to critically examine the histories of immigration, Euro-American ethnic identity formation as “Whiteness,” and contemporary relationships of power. The conversation was led by SVP, Global Inclusion and Strategic Innovation, Dr. Lisa M. Coleman. The discussion focused on Professor Jacobson’s highly acclaimed Whiteness of a Different Color: European Immigrants and the Alchemy of Race, which demonstrates the shifting and highly contingent historic processes of racial formation in the U.S., elucidating contemporary political and cultural meaning of immigration, power relationships and realities embedded in the racial constructed category of “Whiteness.”
