[SOLVED] Origins of the Modern Idea of Race

This case considers the impact of the modern idea of a race on European societies from its emergence in the late eighteenth century to the present day. It is divided into three parts:  •        What is race? Part one examines the writings of the main theorists of race and assesses the role of racial determinism in the transformation of the educational, political and other spheres of European social life, from the care of the body through physical education to racial discrimination, i.e., social exclusion on the basis of race;  •        What are the origins of racial hatred as it applies to the Jewish experience in Europe? Part two explores the origins of antisemitism and examines its culmination in Nazi ideology and the Holocaust.  •        How has the international community tried to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination after the Second World War and how effective has it been? Part three concludes the case study by examining racial prejudice in contemporary Europe in the post-World War Two context of international legislation for the elimination of racial discrimination.
