My journey: ‘race’, the sciences, and gender

The paper starts from the problem that politics and everyday interaction to counter discrimination on grounds of racial or gender difference use the categories of race and gender, thus possibly reinforcing the belief that these differences are real not only in a social but also in a biological sense, thus implying an unchangeable difference between humans. Using examples from 1920’s pre-Nazi Germany popularisation of racial thought it argues for a conscious and context dependent use and critique of “race” and for a critical investigation of the historical contingencies of the creation and use of “race” as a scientific category.
