Critical Racial & Anti-Colonial Studies (CRACS)


The Critical Racial & Anti-Colonial Studies (CRACS) Research Network assembles UBC scholars whose work overlaps with themes covered by anti-racist and anti-colonial political movements, with a focus on advancing a notion of social justice that foregrounds social transformation, not merely social inclusion. We hope to achieve this work through the promotion of scholarship and conversations, in the form of talks, lectures, workshops, and sponsorship of student-led initiatives.
