The Race/Knowledge Project: Anti-Racist Praxis and the Global University

The Race/Knowledge Project:
Anti-Racist Praxis
and the Global University

Year of Funding: 
2008/2009

The Race/Knowledge Project considered the contemporary status of race within what the "global" university. The contours of this year-long research program included public lectures, roundtables, study groups, and a symposium centered on how "anti-racist praxis" might negotiate the discourses of the colorblind, multicultural university. These discourses which most often work to, at best, delimit and, at worst, disallow conversations about race/racism even as the university is a site for the (re)production and contestation of racial meanings. To plot new concepts of "anti-racist praxis," our trajectory moved back and forth between the university and other publics; between the global/national and the local; between the work of academic, artist, and activist intellectuals.
