RACE.ED is a cross-university network concerned with race, racialisation and decolonial studies from a multidisciplinary perspective. Approaching race as something that gives order to social, political and economic life, the activities of the network will showcase excellence in teaching, research, and knowledge exchange at The University of Edinburgh

The work of the network seeks to support an understanding of the persistence of race and racialisation as both historical projects and dynamic phenomenon that shape the present. RACE.ED members do this by:

  • Examining the ways that race is a socially constructed idea that travels across different social, economic, temporal and geographical contexts
  • Understanding the consequences of the modern project of race for everyday life
  • Promoting anti-racist sensibilities at the level of interpersonal and systemic practice.
