Race and Inequality Lecture Series: "Colorism and Racial Capital in the New Millennium"
Join us for a talk by Margeret Hunter, Mills College
In a world of cosmetic surgery and skin bleaching creams, how do consumers attempt to purchase racial capital? How do changing gender ideologies affect the meaning of skin tone and race in global job markets, marriage markets, and advertising campaigns? Hunter will explore the changing conception of the body, race, and gender in a globally comparative framework.
Lunch will be provided.
