Seventeen essays written by a team of international scholars aim
collectively at critically reflecting on the historical genesis of modern
racism from its constitution in early Modernity, and its systematisation
in the Enlightenment period, to various forms of its popularisation in
Modern Society. This structure derives from the work of Wulf D. Hund to
whom this edited collection is dedicated. Inspired by his analysis of
racialised discourses in European thought and global history, the book
will show modern racism from different perspectives to be a mode of a
negative societalisation.
