Doctor Who in the Brexit era
Susana Loza

The Chris Chibnall / Jodie Whittaker iteration of Doctor Who imagines a multiracial British nation where the revered alien is a savvy white feminist and her human companions are a middle-aged white man, a young black man with dyspraxia, and a 20-something South Asian woman. In this chapter, I explore the disjunction between a racially divided Britain and the progressive, integrated vision of Doctor Who . I contemplate how Doctor Who ’s post-racial optimism obscures the corrosive and continuing effects

, sharpening race distinctions and making more rigid the social and sexual boundaries between white and black populations. Ruling-class whites deployed perceived racial differences as a means of imposing and strengthening their hegemonic dominance and control of Barbadian society.

Chapter 1 Cultural and racial (dis)affiliations And partly because Ireland is small enough To be still thought of with a family feeling1 A study of American modernism and Irish culture must necessarily begin with a consideration of family. The affiliations and disaffiliations to Ireland experienced by the American writers discussed in this chapter reveal a reading of ‘family’ as literal and metaphorical, building on the kind of familial intimacy implied by the ‘family feeling’ that MacNeice places, in the above lines, at the centre of the ‘small’ domestic sphere

of the women in my street market sites – black women, white Neapolitan women, those working in the market or those passing through – revealed key insights about interconnected patterns of sexual conventions and racialised domination in Napoli. These conventions uncovered a melancholic recollection of colonialism and US military occupation – that continued to demarcate the city in subtle ways – and laid the groundwork for negotiating and managing contemporary fears around racial intimacy. Paranoias about the threat to local ‘sexual preserves’ were articulated

4 A framework for exposing racial stratification: theory and methodology Do you think society is equal or unequal? Every time I ask that question, I get the same answer – that society is unequivocally unequal, from Blacks, Whites, males and females.

More importantly, how do we determine which group/s are at
