2014 Australian Critical Race and Whiteness Studies Association
Brisbane, Queensland, 4-5 December

This conference aims to reinstate the importance of the study of race. The study of race, racialization and racism runs the risk of being relegated to the role of junior partner in the coupling of ‘Critical Race and Whiteness Studies’. The seeming ascendance of Whiteness Studies is not altogether unproblematic,
particularly in relation to perceptions that the discipline has been enlisted in the service of recuperating white virtue. A consequence of this development in Australia has been an attendant elision of Indigenous sovereignties and the ontological relationship to land through which Indigenous people harbour their
sovereignty. In this context, we also ask whether Whiteness Studies has served or occluded Indigenous sovereignties.
It is hoped that in foregrounding race, racialization and racism, scholars will be encouraged reflect on the trajectory of their discipline thus far, and anticipate ways in which their critical concerns will develop against the backdrop of continuing racial antagonisms.
