Creating Race
Race and Power

Session
1

Race is often treated like a reality rooted in biology. In this session we explore race as an idea created by societies. We ask: How was the idea of race created? What function did it serve? Is race understood the same everywhere? Professor Brian Lowery explores the origins of the concept of race and how it manifests itself in different parts of the world. He talks with Andrew Curran, an expert on Colonial Europe, and Sidney Chalhoub, an authority on race in Brazil.
