Racialised Crises presents a wide-ranging analysis of the central role played by racialised issues in public discourse in recent years. Focusing upon the articulation of racialised issues as conflicts or 'crises', this book adopts an interdisciplinary approach to explore the construction and representation of racialised issues in contemporary British media and political discourse. Through a series of case studies including asylum and immigration, Islam and Islamophobia, young black men in gun and knife gang culture, and the far-right and anti-racist protest, Racialised Crises examines how and why media and political discourses surrounding high-profile racialised issues and identities have been constructed. Critically engaged with existing approaches to conflict in journalism, media and cultural studies, as well as contemporary social and political theories less well integrated in the field, this groundbreaking volume provides a timely insight into how ongoing racialised issues and discourses of racism emerge and operate in the UK, and in particular, the role of the media in conditioning and reproducing them as 'crises'. As such, it will be of interest to scholars of sociology, politics, social theory media, cultural and communication studies working in the areas of race, migration and ethnicity and moral panic.
