A multidisciplinary survey of race on the rural-urban fringe.
Between the country and the city, transitional economies on the rural-urban fringe exhibit a unique and understudied relationship to race. White Space maps the workings of race and colonialism in one such liminal region, Canada’s Okanagan Valley. A diverse group of scholars tracks the contested development of whiteness across history—from rapid settler expansion through to the deindustrialized present. Revealing the contingent instability of whiteness, this book offers a powerful demonstration of how oppressive structures can be reimagined and resisted, especially during times of economic change.
