This event aims to bring together academics, with an interest in race and ethnicity, to network and develop new research themes that focus on the ways that social, political, and economic relations interact with race and ethnicity in a given society, region, or community.
The roundtable workshop is an opportunity for researchers to network, learn about ech other's reseach, forge new collaborative links, and develop new research themes. The session will begin with each participating member presenting a brief overview of their own research. We will then break into small groups based on research interests to discuss potential collaborations and new projects. This will be followed by a summary of the day, and a plan for future steps.
The mains themes of the day will include (but not limited to):
- Race, ethnicity, technology & the media
- Intersectional perspectives on race & ethnicity
- Issues of identity and development in relation to race & ethnicity
- Issues of race & ethnicity in connection to employment or human rights
- Historical understandings & construction of race & ethnicity
- Issues of racial & ethnic identity & stereotypes
Additionally, any other form of scholarship that focusses on race and/or ethnicity may be discussed.
