A History of Race with William Edelglass (Zoom)

Sunday, November 29, 2020 13 Kislev 5781

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The first European to divide the peoples of the world into distinct races, in the seventeenth century, claimed that the Sami people of northern Scandinavia were one of four races on earth; Native Americans, Europeans, South Asians, and North Africans together were considered a second race while sub-Saharan Africans were the third, and East Asians were the fourth. How did such a bizarre distinction among groups of people develop into one of the most historically significant ideas of the modern world? Professor William Edelglass will trace the intellectual history of the concept of race in the West, from its prehistory to today.
