The National Judicial Institute's social context education program: Race, nation, and the figure of the judge.

Published 2006 .
Written in English.

About the Book

I aim to uncover the development of the National Judicial Institute's (NJI) social context education program and to read this development as a narrative about race and the nation. The guiding research question is: how is the narrative of the white settler society re-told and reified through the development of NJI's social context education program? To answer this I look at how the program manufactures the figure of the judge.This thesis explores how the program reproduces the settler story by constituting the judge as a white settler figure that achieves definition through its shadow---the Black body. NJI works to protect the reasonable judge figured as mind from the irrational Black community member figured as body. Throughout the story of the program's development, any critical excavation of race is precluded. Instead we have the rearticulation of Canada as a white settler society and the reification of white supremacy.
