This seminar series brings together conversations about race and racism across Africa, Asia and South America.
About this Event
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.
All are welcome to join. Prior registration is necessary to attend the seminar. All seminars held on Tuesdays at 15.00 – 16.00 UK time.
*Please note - joining instructions will be sent to you closer to the time of your chosen seminar*
