Race and Racism in the Global South

Online | Free

Academic debates, particularly theoretical conversations, about race and racism in the Global South have tended to rely heavily on the US experience. Recognising the importance of thinking through the specific forms of racist exclusions in other parts of the world, with a focus on the implications for anti-racism theorising, this seminar series brings together scholars from a broad range of disciplines for a sustained conversation about race and racism in the Global South.
