LECTURE: Wednesday, JAN .13, 2010 Professor Molina “What’s Science got to do with It?” -Science as a site of racialization 18 th -19 th century: difference between people could be measured. Science increased in ways to measure differences. (Ellis Island, measured differences) You could rank people in a hierarchy. -science becomes an unique way to think race biological The belief that what you looked like said something about who you were (intellectually, morally, or your temperament) That such qualities could be passed on. -it’s one thing to say that this is happening to one of the generation, but affecting the generations to come, affected many discourses about immigration. Race is fixed, unalterable -race is biology. If this is true, people cannot change and become “Americanized”, assimilate, and are continued to be marginalized. -Disability studies and ethnic studies (modal subject=white, male; anybody who doesn’t fit in this criteria is not normal, able-bodied.) are starting to intersect.
