Our motivation for putting this stream together was to build towards community for people who work on race. While conferences are not necessarily the best, and certainly not the primary, spaces for this to happen, we were keen to use this as an opportunity for critical intervention. (To our knowledge, this is the first time there has been a race stream at EGOS )
Unfortunately, however, the fees and other costs of attending conferences can be exclusionary. It is no secret that those that work on issues of structural exclusion and subjugation are most often precariously positioned in relation to institutional resources.
We have therefore created a crowdfunder in the hope of raising some money to help mitigate the costs for some of our participants who are students or those that are not on academic contracts/do not have access to research funds. We hope that we thus address the exclusions otherwise encountered.
Please note: If we do not meet the target, your donations will be returned. The money will not be withdrawn or reallocated for any other purpose. You will be informed about whether or not we were successful in acheiving our goal.
