This conference is seeking submissions of abstracts for talks that help 
us to critically understand racism and its mediation. Submissions are 
invited on questions such as:
- How is the notion of race historically (re)constructed through 
socio-economic, religious and technological contexts?
- What is the relationship of racism and capitalism in the context of 
the media and ideology?
- How are ideas around race mediated through channels of knowledge 
production and in turn hegemonised?
- What are the formal and informal media platforms that disseminate 
ideas about race?
- How does race politics function in non-white contexts?
- How is race mediated in everyday life in institutions and communities 
in different parts of the world? And
- How are the ensuing processes of othering resisted, undone and thus 
dismantled against the backdrop of global crises?


The deadline for abstracts is Tuesday 14th January 2020. Successful 
applicants will be notified by Tuesday 21st of January 2020. Abstracts 
should be 250 words. They must include the presenter’s name, 
affiliation, email and postal address, together with the title of the 
paper and a 150-word biographical note on the presenter. Please send all 
these items together in a single Word file, not as pdf, and entitle the 
file and message with ‘CAMRI 2020’ followed by your surname. The file 
should be sent by email to both: Dr Miriyam Aouragh
