Keynotes by 

Ann Phoenix (Institute of Education) & Nathaniel Adam Tobias Coleman (University College London)

The White Rose Critical Race and Ethnicities Network (CREN) invite researchers who work in the broad field of critical race and ethnicities to attend this one day conference.

The conference seeks to open a mutually-supportive space for scholars to collectively challenge the white hegemonic thought that currently pervades much intellectual discussion and academic research.

We invite contributions that centralise race and/or ethnicity. Some topics for discussion might include, but are not limited to:

  • Critical race studies
  • Islamophobia and/or Racism
  • Critical methodologies
  • Critical mixed race studies
  • Race and Gender
  • Critical Race, Sexuality and Queerness Studies
  • Deconstructing Borders and Migration
  • Race activism
  • Postcolonial and Decolonial theory and praxis
  • Intersectionality
  • Race, Ethnicity and Religion

We invite any panels, papers and other innovative presentation styles (e.g. poetry, videos, etc.) that address these themes and welcome national and international postgraduates and early career researchers from a wide range of faculties and disciplines.

Please email your abstracts (300 words) and a mini-biography (150 words) to the organising committee atcontactcren@gmail.com by March 1st 2015.
