ANTI-Racism working group presents a new seminar series: Understanding race, racism and antiracism in migration studies, comparatively across Europe and beyond

15 January, 2021 - Online

On behalf of the anti-racism working group, we like to invite you to join our online seminar series. Following the global mobilization against racism, we have put together a webinar series to reflect on migration histories, race and racism and the challenges facing anti-racist work today.

The seminars provide a focused entry point for debates into the multiple and varied histories of colonialism in Europe, as old colonial powers, modern colonial powers, peripheral/failed colonial powers and as historically dominated countries. These three seminars bring together thinkers from across 12 countries to offer state-of-the-art reviews of these issues and stress the commonalities and differences both in historical and contemporary terms and explore the social, cultural and political dynamics underpinning discourses of race.
