Call for Contributors to the ACRAWSA Blog

Welcome to the brand new blog of the Australian Critical Race & Whiteness Studies Association. This space is designed to give voice to academics, activists, and practitioners committed to Aboriginal and Torres Islander’s sovereignty and to the critical interrogation of race and whiteness in Australia and beyond.

The Blog is edited by ACRAWSA member and critical race scholar, Maria Elena Indelicato with support from the association’s executive and the Critical Race & Whiteness Studies journal editorial committee. We encourage you to write for us on any theme of relevance to the Association’s aims.

The ACRAWSA Blog has two sections. Fire is a space for exploring current public debates on issues of race, racism, Aboriginal sovereignty, whiteness, etc.

If you are a postgraduate student seeking support for your writing, we encourage you to contribute articles on similar themes to Voice. This section of the Blog is explicitly designed to provide mentoring for postgraduate students in a nurturing environment. We would strongly encourage doctoral supervisors to point their students in the direction of the Voice section.

If you wish to comment on a book, performance, or event please consider contributing to Reviews.

For further information on how to submit to the Blog, please visit the submission guidelines.

Lastly, ACRAWSA would be delighted if you would spread the word about the Blog to your networks. Consider following us on Facebook and Twitter and sharing our articles. ACRAWSA is commited to bulding up our network and creating a space for a deep and transformative discussion of race in Australia and beyond.
