Are We Really Post-Race?: A Transnational Perspective

 2-3 December 2013, University of Western Sydney, Parramatta South (PS-EB.G.17)

Organised by Dr Alana Lentin, Senior Lecturer in Cultural & Social Analysis,

The concept has thus become highly relevant for scholars of race, ethnicity and multiculturalism. However, the analysis of its impact on the study of these themes, often marginalised within disciplines, remains nascent.

Pending readers’ reviews which we are waiting for at the end of November, the book will be out on June 9 2011.
