The white power utopia and the reproduction of victimized whiteness

研究成果: Chapter

抄録

David Eden Lane’s KD Rebel (2002) and H. A. Covington’s The Hill of the Ravens (2003) are meant to paint a “terrifying” picture of multiculturalism as a dominant ideology and social reality, but both novels also contain a eutopian dimension by imagining how white people could separate from US society and create a corrective alternative to multiculturalism and the perception that the government persecutes, in particular, white heterosexual men. This chapter argues that what makes these novels utopian is not the imagination of how perfect society would be if it were only populated by heterosexual, non-Jewish white people, but rather the formation (or reconsolidation) of whiteness as a form of class consciousness.
