With Professor Gargi Bhattacharyya. Racism is outwardly condemned as an evil in our purportedly ‘liberal’ societies, yet it is inextricably linked to capitalism through violent histories of racist expropriation, and centuries of slavery and empire. Modern capitalism is built upon these histories, and Gargi Bhattacharyya argues that it is only by tracking the interconnections between its changing development and racism that we can hope to address the most urgent challenges of social injustice today. She is Professor of Sociology at the University of East London, where her research interests lie in the areas of ‘race’ and racisms, sexualities, global cultures, the ‘War on Terror’, austerity and racial capitalism. She has written widely on all these issues, and her most recent book, Rethinking Racial Capitalism: Questions of Reproduction and Survival, was published by Rowman and Littlefield last year.
