Mapping the Field: Contemporary Theories of Race, Racism and Ethnicity
Newman University, Birmingham, UK, 9.45am-5.30pm
Friday 31st January,

The idea for this conference arose from a discussion at the BSA Race and Ethnicity Study Group business meeting at the annual conference in 2013. Our aim is to bring to light the diverse range of theoretical work that is being developed and to consider how the theory is brought to bear on current issues of race, racism and ethnicity. Papers are invited that both explore contemporary theoretical debates and consider the ways in which diverse theoretical frameworks are deployed in specific areas of study. Paper topics include, but are not restricted to, the following themes:

Theories of race, racism and ethnicity                                     Black British feminism
The implications of ‘post-racialism’ on the study of racism         The impact of intersectionality on the field
Thinking globally/historically in connecting race,                       Understanding race and racism under austerity
colonialism and Empire                                                          Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and/as racism
Race, migration and diaspora                                                 Mixed heritages and the study of ethnicity
