Description: Desiring Whiteness provides a compelling new interpretation of how we understand race. Race is often presumed to be a social construction and we continue to deploy race thinking in our everyday life as a way of telling people apart visually.

Seshadri-Crooks explores this visual discrimination by asking questions in specifically psychoanalytic terms: how do subjects become raced? Employing Lacan's theories of the subject and sexual difference, the author explores how the discourse of race parallels that of sexual difference in making racial identity a fundamental component of our thinking.
