Race otherwise : forging a new humanism for South Africa

Articles
How is 'race' determined? Is it your DNA? The community that you were raised in? The way others see you or the way you see yourself? In 'Race Otherwise', Zimitri Erasmus questions the notion that one can know race with one's eyes, with racial categories and with genetic ancestry tests. She moves between the intimate probing of racial identities as we experience them individually, and analysis of the global historical forces that have created these identities and woven them into our thinking about what it means to be 'human'.
