"Color violence, deadly geographies, and the meanings of “race” in Brazil"

Dr. Luisa Schwartzman
Sociology, University of Toronto Mississauga

Triangulating three measures of "race" — self-identified “census race,” interviewer-identified skin color, and racial composition of the municipality — in conjunction with measures of class, gender and space, Luisa Schwartzman's research illuminates how racialization and "groupness" are implicated in the reproduction of violence. Dr. Schwartzman uses nationally representative survey data from Brazil to examine how “race” relates to violent victimization, and to people’s support for violent practices of social control.
