Racial Boundary Work

 
People “do” racial boundary work all the time in a multitude of ways.  One action prompts another’s reaction and on it goes. Oftentimes it gets complicated, especially when race interacts with class, gender, and other axes of identification (what social scientists often refer to as “intersectionality”).  This is as true in institutions of higher education as it is elsewhere.
