Race and Resistance across Borders in the Long Twentieth Century
Launched in January 2013, the Race and Resistance programme brings together researchers in the history, literature, and culture of anti-racist movements in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, the United States, and beyond.
Given recent political events, the study of race has become increasingly politicized and contentious. Our Programme actively challenges all forms of racism and hierarchy, both past and present.
We meet most Fridays during term-time, with sessions taking a variety of formats, including lectures by invited speakers, short research presentations, seminars discussing pre-circulated texts from a range of disciplines, book launches, and film screenings.
All are welcome to attend.
Its first two volumes are forthcoming in 2017.
Skin Deep is a current publication in Oxford which provides an opportunity to discuss issues of race, racial representation and racial identity. It seeks to cultivate a space where different experiences of race can be shared, retold and examined.
