Race is a pervasive and omnipresent dimension of inequality, both within societies and at a global scale. Yet it is the one dimension that is most difficult to talk about. Even the word itself, race, is fraught. How to use the concept of race? How is race done in practice? And how does it create and perpetuate social inequalities? We talk about this with our guests Amade M’Charek, professor in anthropology of science at the University of Amsterdam, and our regular Julian Schaap, assistant professor in the sociology of music at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. We discuss how race is done in domains like forensics and music, and what this tells us about the limits and potentialities of the concept.
