Genealogy is now accepting submissions for a Special Issue on the theme: What’s Your “Street Race?” Cartographies and Ontologies of “Race” and the Future of Knowledge Production on Inequality, Resistance and Social Justice.
We place “race” in quotation marks to underscore “race” as a social construction that has no innate biological or genetic essential characteristics, but is best understood as a social construction and a relationship of power at the individual, institutional and structural levels. This issue invites essays from scholars from multiple disciplines to engage in on-going, critical and self-implicating, reflexivity about the meaning of race and how “race” is conceptualized in their own work and within their discipline, workplace, institutions and structural arrangements at the local, national and global levels.
Health professionals may be particularly interested in investigating the genealogy of the social construction of race in practice, with respect to how governmentality and its institutions affect the lives of real individuals and communities in terms of their physical and mental health.
The deadline for manuscript submissions is March 15, 2020.
