Race, the floating signifier
- Main contributor
Stuart Hall, a renowned public speaker and teacher, presents a lecture on race and the meaning of racial signifiers (e.g., skin color) at Goldsmiths' College, New Cross, London. Hall contends that racial signifiers are not absolute, but dependent on cultural contexts and their inherent racial classifications and stereotypes. The lecture is preceded by an interview of Hall by Sut Jhally.
