Example text

INTRODUCTION 5 1991). While often utilising racial classifications, this literature also incorporated anthropological perspectives on ethnicity and social boundaries. Richard Jenkins, among others, has shown that there are continuities between the methodological and theoretical approach applied to tribal societies and their 'modern' equivalent - ethnic groups (Jenkins 1986 and 1997). John Rex's Race Relations in Sociological Theory, along with his subsequent output, represents another important attempt to construct a theoretical framework for the analysis of race relations and racism.

Dyer contends that white ethnicity in the cinema is impl icitly present but expl icitly absent and as a result it has 'an everything and nothing quality'. In these representations whiteness is equated with normality and as such it is not in need of definition. Thus 'being normal' is colonised by the idea of 'being white'. From a different perspective, bell hooks has graphically discussed the terrorising effect that 'whiteness' has on the black imagination. Writing on her experience of growing up as a black woman in the American South she comments: 'whiteness in the black imagination is often a representation of terror' (hooks 1992: 342).

A particularly controversial example of this trend was the book by Michele Wallace Black Macho and The Myth of the Superwoman, that was originally published in 1979, and which sought to explore important aspects of the relationship between black men and women (Wallace 1990). Another influential text was Ain't I A Woman: Black Women and Feminism by bell hooks, INTRODUCTION 17 originally published in 1981, and which was concerned with both establishing the possibility of a dialogue between black women and feminism and with a critical analysis of the limits of feminism in relation to the question of race (hooks 1981>.
