A community arts & cultural center

2035 Ashby Ave.

Berkeley, CA

(just east of the NE corner of Ashby & Adeline;

_________________________________________________________________

A study of how the structures of racialization in the US produce and reconstruct white hegemony and white racialized identity whenever those cultural structures are called into question by pro-democracy movements, such as the civil rights movements.

Other topics are how class is racialized, the relation of the corporate structure to the invention of the modern concept of race, the relation of white populism to the state, and to US interventionism in the world.

There will be a generous discussion of some of the issues the book raises, for both our present political situation and a proactive future.

There will be refreshments.

_________________________________________________________________

In The Machinery of Whiteness, Martinot examines how race and racism are produced in the United States, analyzing the politics of racialization and the racial segregation and racial deprivation that have kept the United States a white-dominated society throughout its history. Martinot dedicates this work to expunging white supremacy from the earth.

The Machinery of Whiteness investigates how "whiteness" came to be foundational to the process that then produced the modern concept of race. Martinot addresses the instrumentalization of women as a necessary step in the formation of the concept, furthering the debates regarding the relationships of race and gender. He also addresses U.S. international interventionism, the anti-immigrant movements, and white racist populism to describe the political forms that white supremacy takes.

Martinot brings together these ideas to analyze the underlying cultural structures of racialization that have driven and conditioned the resurgence of white supremacy and white entitlement in the wake of the civil rights movements. This book is a call to transform the cultural structures of the United States to make justice and democracy—which depend on inclusion and not segregation—possible. This is a book release seminar and book signing event. Seminars will follow in July and August on 2nd and 4th Wednesdays.
