Guests Shona Hunter, Christi van der Westhuizen, and Ashley Mattheis join Right Rising to discuss their new edited volume Routledge Handbook of Critical Studies in Whiteness, which seeks to understand whiteness as a manifestation of power. Shona, Christi, and Ashley break down what "critical whiteness studies" are and why this is useful in understanding the contemporary activism of the radical right. How - we ask - is whiteness produced in various historical and sociopolitical circumstances?
