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 ongoing, critical, and self-implicating, self-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. All work should clarify how their unique contribution helps us to understand the importance of conceptualizations of race for understanding and creating solutions for eliminating inequality at the individual, interpersonal, institutional, structural and/or global levels. Guest editors are Drs. Nancy López, J.E. Jamal Martín, and Jeffrey Long. Manuscripts should be submitted online at Deadline for manuscript submissions: March 15, 2020.
