Homeland Security, the Neighbourhood Watch, and the Work of Racial Sightlines

Matthew Pratt Guterl is Professor of Africana Studies and Chair of American Studies at Brown University.  Guterl is author of several books. His first, The Color of Race in America, 1900-1940, was published in 2001 and won a "Best Book" award from the American Political Science Association. It is a narrative of the shifting racial classifications in New York City. His second, American Mediterranean: Southern Slaveholders in the Age of Emacipation, was published in 2008 and received honorable mention in the competition for the 2009 Gordon K. and Sybil Lewis award given by the Caribbean Studies Association.  It traces the rise and fall of Southern slaveholding against a hemispheric backdrop. A third book, Seeing Race in Modern America, is forthcoming in the fall of 2013 from the University of North Carolina Press, and considers the history of racial sight over the past 200 years.
