Annotation:
The paper reviews thematic patterns and trends pertaining to constructions of race and racism within South African psychology's formal discourse, 1990-2000. It notes that clear differences emerge temporally with shifts in the sociohistorical terrain of South African society, and it is the author's contention that these manifestations relate directly to ideological, political, social, and economic conditions prevalent in South Africa and within the global context. Political transformation and its associated perceived threats to economic, social, and cultural integrity the impact of globalization and neoliberal ideologies and the contested institutional dynamics underpinning race and racism in postapartheid South Africa are all explored. The author acknowledges the changing social and economic relations upon which modern theories are based and suggests a way to begin to understand manifestations of race and racism in the new global context.
