Breaking Black: The death of ethnic and racial studies in Britain

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, I examine the changing contours of racial and ethnic studies in Britain over the past 40 years. Building on my 2002 ERS paper 'Beyond Black', I reflect on the transformation and fragmentation of political blackness, in and out of the academy, and consider the implications for racial and ethnic identities, solidarities and political action.
