The Race Forum is a public site for discussions about ‘race’ and racism, class, multiculture and postcoloniality; diaspora and global migration and ‘race’, gender, sexuality and desire. It brings together students and academics from different institutions and from across the disciplines of Sociology, Media and Cultural Studies, Law, Literary Studies, Education Studies, Psychosocial Studies, Urban Studies, History and Social Anthropology with others outside the academy.
The Race Forum opens up a space for discussions on the global geopolitics of the twenty-first century and incorporates debates on postcolonialism and empire; the wars against Afghanistan and Iraq and ‘the war on terror’; the recent civil unrest and civil disobedience in the U.K and across the globe; resurgent nationalisms and human rights. It also focuses on political cultures such as religious revivalisms, anti-globalisation, peace, anarchist, postcolonial feminist and prison abolition movements. It is a place for conversations on music and cultural politics, 'whiteness'; intersectionality; 'homonationalism'; class, 'race' and criminalisation; militarism; policing; 'urban regeneration'; addiction, illiteracy and incarceration; 'race', class and education; racial and sexual violence and institutional racism.
