Race matters.

The Global History Centre and Culture, Warwick, are organising their annual conference on ‘Race Matters’, to explore the complex and contested ways in which race has been site, signifier and discourse since early modern times. The conference begins with a keynote by Prof Nira Wickramasinghe (Leiden) on the 14th Nov evening, followed by several paper presentations on the 15th that take up different enunciations of race as a historical category.

The conference brings together distinguished scholars as well as Graduate students who look at the global deployments of race in different settings. In our concluding roundtable on ‘Bodies and Borders’, our panelists will reflect on how issues of race, migration and belonging inform contemporary cultural and political mobilisations in the UK and elsewhere.
