The Racial Violence Hub

This site creates a virtual community of feminist critical race scholars, artists, activists, and organizations working on issues of racial violence and the state. The Hub’s goal is to foster research, develop critical pedagogies and share resources for anti-violence practices around state violence against Indigenous and racialized peoples. The Hub emphasizes the race line that runs through state violence and terror.

The RVHub generates an analysis built around the following ideas:

Racial power is articulated through violence and terror.
Racial violence is an identity-making practice
Racial violence is often legally and socially authorized and is integral to the making of states.
Racial violence is gendered and sexualized.

The hub offers an opportunity to explore these questions in collaboration with other scholars, artists and activists.
