The Problem of Race Mixture in the Americas

In this study I will examine the larger problematic of race by tracing ideas and practices concerning race mixture comparatively and historically. Focusing primarily on the experiences of Indians and Africans in the Americas, but drawing selectively from other national experiences as well (especially Australia and France), I will analyze ideas about racial lineage, racial identity and identification, and how that history can inform contemporary issues about racial identity.
