Critical Race Theory in the Age of Neoliberalism: A Conversation with David Theo Goldberg
This episode’s guest is David Theo Goldberg, author and Distinguished Professor at the University of California, Irvine. David is among the most significant scholars writing on race and racism over the last several decades. According to Paul Gilroy, few scholars have "done more to shake the field and to influence it, who've been more consistent, more prolific."
In this episode, we are in conversation with David about his books Are We All Postracial Yet? (Polity, 2015) and Dread: Facing Futureless Futures (Polity, 2021). David discusses the recent fabrication and reframing of Critical Race Theory by influential right-wing voices, the sense of dread that led him to write his most recent book, and his hope for a collective ecology of care.
