To Register hit NEXT Below


In recent years, interest in racial capitalism has exploded in several disciplines, including history, political theory, and cultural studies. What does "racial capitalism" mean? What is, or should be, the relationship of this framework to Critical Race Theory and settler colonialism theory? What might an understanding of legal doctrines, institutions, and processes add to racial capitalism scholarship? This panel brings together scholars whose cutting-edge research projects investigate markets, politics, and white supremacy. Join us for a stimulating discussion of their work, including topics such as food justice and the meat industry, racialized labor exploitation as the basis of the platform economy, debtor and creditor relations, incorporating race into theories of class, and more.
