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?
