Call for Contributions: Critical Race Perspectives on International Law
Call for contributions to the upcoming online-symposium
“Race is the child of racism, not the father,” writes Ta-Nehisi Coates in “Between the World and Me”. Such understanding of race not as an empirical category but as a category for analyzing power relations and structural discrimination underlies the symposium “Critical Race Perspectives on International Law“ that Völkerrechtsblog will host in January 2018. We invite contributions that address questions of race in various areas of international law, those taking comparative perspectives – for instance between the United States and Europe, and contributions in the field of race and religion. Contributions should be around 1000 words long, and are welcome in English, French, or German. They will be received till 20 December 2017. Please send us your texts or inquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We partner with the workshop “Race and law – German and French cross-sectional perspectives” that took place on 19 – 20 October in Berlin, from the participants of which papers will be included.
