Australian Critical Race and Whiteness Studies Association



2015 Australian Critical Race and Whiteness Studies Association
Sydney, 23-24 NovemberCall for AbstractsACRAWSA
is calling for scholars working on any aspect of critical race or
whiteness studies to submit papers for our annual conference. The
conference has an open theme, and we encourage scholars working in
elevant areas to attend and reflect upon the field.
Abstracts of no more than 200 words are sought, accompanied by a 50 word biographical note
the author(s).  Individual papers will follow the standard format of a
maximum twenty minute presentation and 10 minutes for questions.
Sessions will be 1.5 hours long. Those interested in
facilitating a
panel should submit abstracts for all three papers to be included in the
session along with biographical details of each author. It is expected
that submitted panels will have a theme that links the three papers.
Indicative topics might include:

  • Critical Race and Whiteness Studies in the Humanities, Social
    Sciences, Natural Sciences and the Professions

  • Whiteness Studies and the ‘New Abolition’ project

  • Race and Indigeneity

  • Race and Multiculturalism

  • Australian Islamophobia

  • Race as religion           

  • Racialization

  • Violent Racism

  • Race, Whiteness and the Australian Imaginary

  • Indigenous Sovereignty

  • Spatial Racisms 

  • The performativity of race

  • Race and Modernity

ACRAWSA is committed to supporting Indigenous scholars as well as postgraduate scholars,
both Indigenous and non-Indigenous. Scholarships for postgraduate and/or Indigenous scholars to attend the conference will be advertised over the coming months.
Presenters should note ACRAWSA’s commitment to the recognition of Indigenous sovereignties and hallenging white race privilege. Non-Indigenous presenters in particular are encouraged to give due consideration to the implications of their presentation in terms of privilege and the sovereignty of the First Nations people upon whose land non-Indigenous people work and live.

Abstracts should be submitted to by Friday October 16th 2015.
