A white history

The term “race” extends beyond biology to embrace class, gender and ideals of beauty, claims American historian Nell Irvin Painter. Her book The History of White People, which became a best-seller in the USA, explores how the race concept became established and asked what leads to a person being defined as “white” or “non-white”.

Author Kristina Leganger Iversen has researched the idea of “white” in Scandinavian literature. She interviews Painter about what it actually means to be white. After their conversation, questions will be invited from the audience.

The conversation will be in English.
