Monday, December 7, 2015: Racism and the Global Beauty Industry

What is Colorism? What is Sexual Currency? What is Hip Hop Feminism? A New Look at Beauty

Meeta Rani Jha joins us to discuss her new book, The Global Beauty Industry: Colorism, Racism and the National Body. Kate Raphael talks with Meeta Rani Jha about internal racism as the offspring of or legacy of colonialism and white supremacy and more.

The Global Beauty Industry is an interdisciplinary text that uses beauty to explore topics of gender, race, class, colorism, nation, bodies, multiculturalism, transnationalism, and intersectionality. Integrating materials from a wide range of cultural and geo-political contexts, it coalesces with initiatives to produce more internationally relevant curricula in fields such as sociology, as well as cultural, women's/gender, media, and globalization studies.

This book is available at your local bookstore and online at Amazon.
