Critical Race Theory, Race Equity, and Public Health: Toward Antiracism Praxis
This conversation draws out the personal, social, political and intellectual contexts in which a generation of IR scholars came to re-engage the field with the study of race and racism. According to Hakim Adi, an influential historian of Pan-Africanism, the scale and longevity of this, the latest iteration of the movement for black lives, was historically unprecedented Mohdin and Swann Academia has not been insulated from the BLM phenomenon; neither has the field of International Relations.
Still, respond it did. A number of other organizations related to the IR world by policy, research or teaching also took stock-take, publicly or privately. IR magazines and journals similarly felt the need to respond. Foreign Policy magazine solicited a number of interventions on race and racism in IR, starting with a wonderful state-of-play article by Zvobgo and Loken , comprehensively covering research and teaching.
The magazine followed this up with various interventions by other scholars of race and racism in the field Shilliam ; Bhambra et al. Subsequently, Foreign Affairs published a think-piece by historian Keisha Blain on the international dimensions of the US Black freedom struggle. However, this academic controversy did not erupt out of thin air, but arrived as part of a deep and long-term swell in the critical study of race in IR.
In fact, the s were marked by an intensification of monographs, conferences, panels and workshops focusing on race and racism which, at least in part, tracked the rise of BLM as well as other movements such as Rhodes Must Fall, Idle No More etc.
Of course, one might ask how far back does this tradition of critical inquiry go. Still, between then and the last decade, there exists a fair span of time. Scholars are still alive and active in the field, most of whom undertook graduate school in the s, and who were publishing on race and racism in IR in the s and s. In many ways, this generation of scholars retrieved and relaunched the critique of race and racism in IR that, as a tradition, had largely moved out of IR or otherwise held in abeyance.
What are the living histories—personal, familial, intellectual, political—of these senior scholars, and how might they inform the present debate? The aim of bringing this diverse cohort of scholars together in collective reflection is to interrupt the well-meaning yet ultimately disabling rush to account for race and racism as if it has never been accounted for before in IR.
This interruption has all-at-once intellectual and political implications which might be apprehended by way of the idea of inheritance. Power is efficacious when it is institutionalized. Institutionalization requires structures that exceed the energies, reach, lifetimes and memories of individuals. Power is inherited and disposed of inter-generationally.
Subjection requires the cutting of lines of inheritance and the consistent resetting of energies, ideas, memories and strategies to year zero. The retrieval of inheritances as living multifaceted resources—or counter-archives—allows us to deepen and widen our conceptual, theoretical and empirical inquiries into race and racism in IR.
If all collective projects are able to proffer an inheritance, then instead of a singular canon, students and scholars might benefit from a democratized and expansive constellation of knowledge. A critical appraisal of the present could therefore become more incisive, edifying, efficacious. True, the stakes at play in academia are immediately less than those at play with organizers on the front lines in the struggle over global justice; but the academic stakes do not necessarily exist separately from this wider world.
Such contributions have not always engaged directly with the issue of race. Furthermore, I not only invited scholars who had published to this effect, but also those who made important contributions in infrastructural ways.
Additionally, a number of contributors also published individual pieces of work on race before this special issue Doty b ; Krishna ; Errol Anthony Henderson ; Grovogui ; Persaud ; Vitalis I was not able to canvas all scholars who made contributions according to these broad criteria.
And, to be honest, I am not even sure how tenable—or useful—those criteria ultimately are, especially the artificial distinction between discourses of race, postcoloniality and imperialism.
Nonetheless, fifteen contributors yielded 22, words, and that is with at least a third of the conversation cut out.
It was not my intention to launch a book but to facilitate a solid, timely and initial response to the summer of Without doubt, more research needs to be done to tell the whole story and build up the counter-archive. And towards this aim we should always keep in mind the intersectional politics of citations.
Ultimately, the list of contributors comprised: Anna M. Persaud, Shirin M. Rai, Robert Vitalis, and Rob Walker.
Our conversation proceeded via two zoom conferences and was followed up by separate zoom and email correspondences which also brought in three more people Crawford, Edmondson and Henderson who were not present for the original conversations.
From these conversations I drew out a set of themes and rearranged the transcribed texts to fit those themes. I then gave the resultant text back to the interlocutors for them to expand, delete and amend as they saw fit. The main purpose in undertaking this editorial process was to afford early career scholars studying race and racism in IR and anyone interested in the issue a finer orientation towards the living histories of this study, and to draw out the ways in which the braided legacies of racism, colonialism and empire are intimately integral to the field of IR.
To this end, I thematized the conversation as follows: points of departure, movements, graduate school, formative experiences of the field, intersectionality, and the contemporary field. In sum, these conversations demonstrate that the eruption of race and racism into IR is not a new phenomenon. It is a regular recurrence. That is the beauty and the dread of the thing. We have an inheritance to critically and creatively work with. In what follows, comments in  parentheses, as well as all citations, were added by the editor.
I was born in Jamaica then a British colony where I completed my primary and secondary school education before leaving in to pursue an undergraduate degree in England, at the University of Birmingham. My father, a primary school teacher, rose through the ranks to become a Jamaica Principal Education Officer. My mother too rose through the ranks to become a Primary School Principal. I grew up in colonial Jamaica with books around me at home. My father constantly sought to nurture a sense of Jamaican nationalism by often re-interpreting the names of British-published book entries for a better understanding by Jamaican school children.
Shortly after my high school graduation, I left Jamaica in to pursue undergraduate studies in England at the University of Birmingham where in , I completed a Bachelor of Social Sciences Honors degree, majoring in Economics, Politics and Sociology.
The most unforgettable experiences I encountered in Britain were race-related. But the most rewarding and beneficial experiences of my British sojourn derived from my living among and learning about the colonial experiences of several African, Asian and other Caribbean students with whom I shared living quarters during these years of decolonization.
A significant intellectual turning point occurred in my final year undergraduate experience at Birmingham. I have to say that I cannot claim any special expertise about race from an academic point of view. For various family reasons, I was especially aware of the cultural diversity at play even in such a bland town as Reading, and of the internal colonialism of the UK itself.
Even while still at school I became intensely aware of the cultures and politics of music and came into contact with musicians from the US, the Caribbean and South Africa who were dramatically reshaping the cultural life of Little England. It was impossible to ignore racism in that context, although I was simultaneously following debates on the left about relations between race, class and gender, and worrying about the nuclear bomb designers working just down the road.
I then escaped to the very different world of Canada in From there I travelled a lot through much of the USA, most of which I experienced as a volatile and threatening place. New York and Detroit especially reshaped my understanding of race. I was probably more shocked by the visceral character of white racism that I saw in so many places as well as by the still pervasive presence of both the Civil War and puritanisms of many kinds. So, existentially, I have some sort of sense of how race plays out in the UK and the US, as well as of some of the complex contextualization necessary to understand both.
I am also aware of the history of racism in Canada, but given the specific places in which I have lived, experiences of indigeneity and many other forms of colonialism have been more pressing for me, especially when linked to threats to local and planetary ecologies.
All this is to say that I engage with race as part of a broader intellectual and political agenda, one that is ultimately grounded in questions about what it means to speak about humanity in general and in particular. Much of how I try to do this I learnt from the music of my youth: from a radical black avant-garde, on the one hand, and from an also radical European avant-garde on the other hand.
I also learnt early on that every experience is easily captured—commodified, reified, abstracted—in ways that reproduce prevailing forms of power. As with music, so in politics, as Plato once said.
This is why I have tried very hard to make some spaces in which many excluded experiences might be expressed, as well as to understand the mutating ways in which they are suppressed.
Many people—many good friends—have tried to put race onto the disciplinary agenda, but that agenda is heavily overdetermined by other accounts of what it means to be both human and to be politically qualified. Race is a crucial aspect of a broader pattern in this respect.
My entry into international relations where race is concerned probably started very early, because British Guiana, when and where I was born, was still a colony. We had the Queen in our classroom exercise books, and once in a while the Governor General would go by and we would stand there and they would raise the flag. And that was a very confusing thing because I grew up on a sugarcane plantation which bore no resemblance to the Queen.
Contradiction is lived experience. You had the sugarcane field starting less than a mile from the Atlantic Ocean, stretching all the way as far as you could see into the back-dam, going south. Immediately before the cane-fields there was the factory. There was a senior staff compound where the management, almost all of them white from Britain lived, fenced-off and guarded. And you had the junior staff compound where people who worked at the administrative office did not live but socialized.
Then you had the sugarcane workers. Almost everybody worked in the fields if they were not working in the city with the government. And we did not have televisions. The only way you might encounter race would be through movies, but they were heavily edited. So I actually came to race in IR through anti-imperialism. When political parties rallied in villages, the entire family would go—sometimes a few hundred people, children and all.
The meetings went on for two or three hours late into the night. And it would basically be non-stop criticisms of imperialism. Once in a while, they would throw in colonialism, but we hardly ever heard any criticisms of colonialism, or of the Queen, or of British intelligence or anybody else.
By the time I read Fanon in my second year at York University, I already had a sense of space and what today we call the coloniality of power. Well, my way back beginnings are probably a bit more U. This was in the s. My first awareness of race came when the Birmingham Church was blown up. I discovered that my relatives there were racist, and my grandmother, who I really loved, was also a racist.
I had a little African American friend. We had to meet at the edges of our yard. This was a personal kind of awareness.

This resource will help you begin the process of understanding literary theory and schools of criticism and how they are used in the academy. Critical Race Theory, or CRT, is a theoretical and interpretive mode that examines the appearance of race and racism across dominant cultural modes of expression. In adopting this approach, CRT scholars attempt to understand how victims of systemic racism are affected by cultural perceptions of race and how they are able to represent themselves to counter prejudice.

Advancing Race and Ethnicity in Education pp Cite as. In this chapter, I explain two ways in which Critical Race Theory CRT offers useful contributions to the field of race and education and, more specifically, to discussions of institutional racism and classroom discrimination. I then set out the first illustration of the use of CRT in education, which focuses on the use of storytelling or chronicles in CRT scholarship and their use in examining the operation of processes of institutional racism at a national, local or school level. By no means do I mean to suggest that these are the only productive uses of CRT, only that these appear to be two examples of the use of the theoretical and methodological tools offered by CRT.

Buy ebook from VitalSource. A brief topical text that focuses on the social and historical construction of race and racial inequality. Ideal for instructors who want the flexibility to assign additional readings, Race and Racisms: A Critical Approach, Brief Second Edition, is a topical text that engages students in significant questions related to racial dynamics in the United States and around the world.
Ford originated the commentary and led the writing. Airhihenbuwa assisted in developing key ideas and in writing the commentary. Racial scholars argue that racism produces rates of morbidity, mortality, and overall well-being that vary depending on socially assigned race. Eliminating racism is therefore central to achieving health equity, but this requires new paradigms that are responsive to structural racism's contemporary influence on health, health inequities, and research. Critical Race Theory is an emerging transdisciplinary, race-equity methodology that originated in legal studies and is grounded in social justice.
Critical race theory CRT , the view that the law and legal institutions are inherently racist and that race itself, instead of being biologically grounded and natural, is a socially constructed concept that is used by white people to further their economic and political interests at the expense of people of colour.
Race and racism in international relations: retrieving a scholarly inheritance
Клубы. Для панков? - переспросил бармен, странно посмотрев на Беккера. - Да.
Розы, шампанское, широченная кровать с балдахином. Росио нигде не. Дверь, ведущая в ванную, закрыта. - Prostituiert? - Немец бросил боязливый взгляд на дверь в ванную. Он был крупнее, чем ожидал Беккер. Волосатая грудь начиналась сразу под тройным подбородком и выпячивалась ничуть не меньше, чем живот необъятного размера, на котором едва сходился пояс купального халата с фирменным знаком отеля.

Гигантский компьютер содрогался мелкой дрожью, из густого клубящегося тумана падали капли воды. Сигналы тревоги гремели подобно грому. Коммандер посмотрел на вышедший из строя главный генератор, на котором лежал Фил Чатрукьян.
Никто не слышал. Это было сделано тайно. - Мидж, - сказал Бринкерхофф, - Джабба просто помешан на безопасности ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Он ни за что не установил бы переключатель, позволяющий действовать в обход… - Стратмор заставил .
Все люди на подиуме потянулись к терминалу в одно и то же мгновение, образовав единое сплетение вытянутых рук. Но Сьюзан, опередив всех, прикоснулась к клавиатуре и нажала цифру 3. Все повернулись к экрану, где над всем этим хаосом появилась надпись: ВВЕСТИ ПАРОЛЬ. 3 - Да! - скомандовал Фонтейн.
- И тут же доложите. ГЛАВА 34 Сьюзан сидела одна в помещении Третьего узла, ожидая возвращения Следопыта.
ГЛАВА 59 Сьюзан протянула руку, и коммандер Стратмор помог ей подняться по лестнице в помещение шифровалки. А перед глазами у нее стоял образ Фила Чатрукьяна, его искалеченного и обгоревшего тела, распростертого на генераторах, а из головы не выходила мысль о Хейле, притаившемся в лабиринтах шифровалки. Правда открылась со всей очевидностью: Хейл столкнул Чатрукьяна. Нетвердой походкой Сьюзан подошла к главному выходу- двери, через которую она вошла сюда несколько часов .
Всю ночь, - безучастно ответила Сьюзан. - Хм-м… - пробурчал Хейл с набитым ртом. - Милая ночка вдвоем в Детском манеже. - Втроем, - поправила Сьюзан. - Коммандер Стратмор у .
- Вечером в субботу. - Нет, - сказала Мидж. - Насколько я знаю Стратмора, это его дела. Готова спорить на любые деньги, что он. Чутье мне подсказывает.
Чепуха. Ты никогда не смог бы проникнуть в почту коммандера. - Ты ничего не понимаешь! - кричал Хейл.
