Abstract:

Discusses the concept of racialization from a range of key perspectives,
including gender relations, policing, urban communities, youth cultures,
immigration, and political life. Racialization has become one of the
central concepts in the study of race and racism. It is widely used in both
theoretical and empirical studies of racial situations. There has been a
proliferation of texts that use this notion in quite diverse ways. It is
used broadly to refer to ways of thinking about race as well as to
institutional processes that give expression to forms of ethno-racial
categorization. 

An important issue in the work of writers such as Robert Miles, for
example, concerns the ways in which the construction of race is shaped
historically and how the usage of that idea forms a basis for exclusionary
practices. The concept therefore refers both to cultural or political
processes or situations where race is invoked as an explanation, as well as
to specific ideological practices in which race is deployed. It is evident,
however, that despite the increasing popularity of the concept of
racialization there has been relatively little critical analysis exploring
its theoretical and empirical usages. It is with this underlying concern in
mind that Racialization: Studies in Theory and Practice brings together
leading international scholars in the field of race and ethnicity in order
to explore both the utility of the concept and its limitations.
