The politics of identity

SHARON SMITH argues that identity politics can’t liberate the oppressed

FIGHTING AGAINST oppression is an urgent issue in U.S. society today. Racism, sexism, and homophobia have all reached appalling levels—that seem only to rise with each passing year. White students in Jena hang nooses, and Black students end up in prison.1 Squads of Minutemen vigilantes patrol the Mexican border with impunity, for the sole purpose of terrorizing migrant communities.2 College campuses across the U.S. commemorate “Islamo-fascism awareness week” as if it were just another legitimate student activity.3 Fred Phelps and his Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church congregation regularly picket outside funerals of gay soldiers killed in Iraq, proclaiming that they belong in hell.4

To be sure, the problem extends way beyond the extremist fringe. Media pundits barely comment on the outrages described above, while

Lauterpacht Centrefor International Law |

The scholarly home of international law at the University of Cambridge

Founded by Professor Sir Elihu Lauterpacht QC in 1983 the Lauterpacht Centre provides a forum for the discussion and development of international law and hosts a number of research projects. We are one of the specialist centres of the Faculty of Law, and based in Cranmer Road, Cambridge, UK.

We aim to provide a framework and forum for critical and constructive thought about the function, content and working of law in the international community, as well as to develop an appreciation of international law as an applied body of rules and principles. A number of individuals associated with the Centre are actively involved in the practical development and application of international law.

The Centre is not involved in the formal teaching or supervision of students of the University as this is the responsibility of the Faculty of Law. The

Renowned Explorers: International Society on Steam


“It’s genuinely great, like, it’s one of my favorite games this year so far. It’s got so much going for it, so much depth, so much character, so much replayability, great systems, unique concepts in combat, awesome presentation…”
TotalBiscuit, The Cynical Brit

“Here’s where I start to love Renowned Explorers. The encounters aren’t just a paper/rock/scissors system of aggressive, friendly, or devious. The more pertinent choice is whether you’re going to talk or fight. Either approach has distinct rules, with some characters suited to one or the other.”
100 – Quartertothree – Tom Chick

“…Renowned Explorers still stands as one of the best surprises of the year so far that wannabe adventurers of any age can enjoy. Encountering some thugs but instead of fighting, it just turns into one great big insult throwing contest where the loser runs away, foaming at the mouth. Brilliant.”
85 – Gamewatcher – John
