RACE-ING HEGEMONIES, RESURGING IMPERIALISMS:
Building Anti-Racist and Anti-Colonial Theory and Practice for Our Times

We are subject daily to revelations about the violence and hypocrisy behind the claims to democracy and human rights in the discourses of the new imperialism. Likewise, there is mounting evidence of the ravages wreaked by globalized capitalism on most of humanity. Despite this, imperialist wars and neoliberal globalized capitalism continue to enjoy hegemonic status in economic, political, social and cultural realms. Underpinning these hegemonies, and central to the very possibility and acceptability of the forms of violence, destruction, injustices and inequalities are race and colonial logics whose force of destruction is borne by colonized and racialized groups, especially those who also face class and gender subordination. The conference aims to bring academics and activists together to critically explore the nature of these hegemonies and to build anti-racist and anti-colonial alliances.

This conference has three goals:

1. To build knowledge of the raced, classed and gendered nature of the hegemonies of imperialism and neoliberal globalization.
2. To provide a more specific focus on how Canada and Canadians are implicated in these processes within their country and abroad.
3. To help build communities and practices of resistance against racism, colonialism, imperialism and neoliberal globalized capitalism.

We invite panels and papers, and proposals for practitioner roundtables, from scholars and activists / practitioners whose work examines any aspect of the racist and colonial logics of the hegemonies of our time, including but not restricted to the following:

*De-colonization or re-colonization: Old and new forms of colonialism in Indigenous and/or Aboriginal communities
*Race, class and gender in security discourses
*Race and economic insecurity
*Race politics in the city
*Race and the university
*The new imperialisms
*Orientalisms
*Attacks on anti-imperialist and anti-globalization transformations in Latin America and the Caribbean
*Masculinities, femininities and sexualities in empire and neoliberal globalization
*Antiracism action – local and global
