Applying a CRT lens to sport in the UK: the case of professional football

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter


This final volume in the C-SAP monograph series is one that ironically hails a significant beginning for critical race theory (CRT) in the UK. This collection draws together writing generated by the UK’s first international CRT conference, held at the Institute of Education, London, on 25–26 June 2009. The conference drew together all the key writers on CRT in the UK and activist(s)/ scholars working internationally, as well as others relatively new to CRT. International scholars came together to debate the potential and efficacy of this emerging critical framework. Keynote addresses included those from Devon Carbado, David Gillborn, Kevin Hylton and Ann Phoenix. This volume considers the relevance of CRT to our understanding of core issues concerning 'race’, racism, racialisation, Whiteness, intersectionality, gender, class, sexuality, pedagogy, policy and politics.
