Issues in Race and Society: An Interdisciplinary Global Journal
As the official resource of ABS, Issues in Race & Society is a double-blind, peer-reviewed academic journal. The biannual journal distinguishes itself as an interdisciplinary, comprehensive, and global examination of the increasingly racial and racialized world that connects us all. It provides a space where all voices can be heard and diverse conversations can occur about the relationship and interconnections between race, power, privilege, and location operating across cultures and societies.
