Title: Adam Hochman
Were the Middle Ages 'Raced'?
A Problem for Social Constructionism About Race


There is widespread agreement in the humanities that 'race' is modern and  
that 'race' is social. I argue that these two consensus positions are  
incommensurable. If 'race' is social, rather biological, then it is not  
modern. One of the consensus positions will need to be abandoned. I argue  
that it is the social consensus--social constructionism about race--which  
ought to go. Race is best understood as a modern biological concept which  
fails to refer. I suggest that the groups social constructionists call  
'races' should be understood as 'racialized groups'.
