Co-founded in 2017 by authors Claudia Rankine and Beth Loffreda, The Racial Imaginary Institute (TRII) is an interdisciplinary collective of artists, writers, knowledge-producers, and activists. The institute’s historic 2018 symposium ‘On Whiteness’ convened a dazzling array of thinkers, artists, and activists. The essays that resulted from the event, collected here, seek to examine whiteness as a source of often unquestioned or even unobserved power, and make visible variations of this dangerous ideology that has been intentionally positioned as neutral.
