Histories of Race Graduate Workshop

This workshop provides a space to bring together the rich intellectual community of scholars working on questions related to race, ethnicity, racial minorities and the process of racialisation. Race is an ever-shifting, malleable social construction. Historians have been at the forefront of making processes of racialisation legible, in addition to demonstrating the effects of racism and racialisation across time and space. The goal of this workshop is to provide an environment for the interchange of ideas and a forum for debate on the theme of race.

The workshop is held on alternate Wednesdays, 12-2PM in the Anna Bateson room at Newnham College.
