Keynote Speaker: Rinaldo Wilcot, 16:16-54:25. This presentation unmasks whiteness in Canada. It does so in two ways. First by attending to how the state creates whiteness as the assumed norm and as naturally belonging. Second, by paying attention to everyday white people and their acts or performance of whiteness which also assert their naturalness and belonging. The paper draws on early whiteness studies to demonstrate how whiteness enacts its violence of superiority and I then offer a different possible account of its future.
