Check out this informative interview with Painter about her very insightful book.

Welcome to the New Site

This site will now begin taking the place of my previous Whiteness Studies site. That site will remain up, and I encourage you to visit it for archived material on whiteness studies and for teaching tools, some of which will be copied here as well.

There's also a Whiteness Studies section on my home page, where you can also find my credentials and copies of some of my other publications.

The most popular item on this site has been my essay Who Invented White People?, published in the Thomson Reader: Conversations in Context, ed. Robert P. Yagelski. Boston: Thomson/Heinle, 2007. 96-102 in 2007.
