Prof Peterson will be discussing 'Racial Logics of Marriage, Migration and Citizenship'.
Date: 24th May
Venue: G1, 7 Priory Rd
Few doubt that racism/s shape harms, inequalities, hostilities and conflicts that directly and indirectly ‘trouble’ world politics. Yet the meaning, practices and effects of racial logics vary temporally and spatially and are especially elusive today when claims of ‘biologistic’ race lack credibility yet racialized violences continue. My current research attempts to 'think racial logics otherwise' by drawing on cross-disciplinary and intersectional research to produce an alternative, critical genealogy of state-making processes and racial formations. I will consider how Eurocentric, state-sanctioned sexual/familial, property, and citizenship arrangements produce ethnic and racialized 'difference,' global inequalities, and anti-immigrant hostilities. I then argue that this analysis provides especially pertinent, applicable understandings of today’s culturally coded racisms and their globally problematic effects.
