Beyond Hate Crime Journal: Perspectives on Racism in Ireland
The articles collected in this journal aim to close the gap in understanding race and racism in the Irish context, beyond the limited understanding of racism as hate crimes.
Articles go from the theoretical (Alana Lentin’s article on expanding the meaning of race beyond social construction), to the conceptual (Robbie McVeigh’s article on the origins of the term “hate crimes” in FBI terminology, and Ronit Lentin’s article on the erasure of race in conceptualizing direct provision and its historical antecedents), to specific case studies (Ebun Joseph on whiteness in the Irish labour market, Jane Xavier on the racialized experiences of migrant women, Karl Kitchin’s article on racism in the Irish education system, and Eugenia Siapera and her colleagues’ article on acts of race talk in online Irish websites).
We hope the collection inspires readers to re-think the meaning of race and racism in the Irish context and look forward to your comment.
The Beyond Hate Crime Journal was published as part of the March: The Anti-Racism Month 2019 celebrations.
