Race/Gender Matters is a research cluster at Kingston University London that captures and concentrates research on theoretical, critical and creative engagements with the materiality of race, gender and language.
R/GM emerges from our shared recognition that a strong and substantial core of our research coalesces around ‘new materialism,’ broadly defined as the reintroduction of matter into critical theory and applied methodologies which destabilise notions of subject and object, human and nature, self and world, and which emphasise difference and contingency as conditions of lived experience. Rather than countering seemingly opposing schools of thought, we believe that the work emerging around new materialism should be brought into conversation with theoretical developments around areas such as critical race theory, historical materialism, poststructuralism, feminism, queer, crip and trans studies.
Members of R/GM seek to contribute to the development of materialist theory; to expand its methodological applications to studies of language, literature, poetics, religion and environment; and to explore its political and ethical dimensions in new configurations of gender and race.
