Race Land: The Ecology of Segregation

Project description

A closer look at white supremacist social systems

How do racial and class discrimination impact economic development, ecological issues, medical research and the overall advancement of science? The EU-funded RACELAND project will answer this question. It will study the segregationist south of the United States during the Cold War era, which was at the centre of white supremacist policymaking. Specifically, the project will research the strategies southern segregationists used to keep their racist world view intact and to export its main tenets across the world. To address the questions concerning social and environmental justice, research will be aimed at learning more about when and why these problems emerged. In view of the recent rise of reactionary populism and the alt-right movement in Europe, this project will shed light on the complex roots of this right-wing upswing.
