Racial violence and the cosmopolitan city

Auteur :
MAWANI, R.

Description :
The A. argues that racisms are an immanent and organizing logic manifest in the production of racial heterogeneities and differentiations upon which cosmopolitical visions depend. To develop these claims, the A. opens with a 1907 sketch which depicts Vancouver both as the most cosmopolitan city in the world and as a site of anti-Asian violence. in racially charged colonial Vancouver, the indifference that Europeans expressed in their encounters with Asian migrants erupted into racial enmity and violence.
