Professor Anthias’ lifelong work has been devoted to understand different forms of oppression and power relations and their intersections. She has written extensively on issues of race and racism, nationalism and migration, as well as gender and class.

For this presentation, Professor Anthias will present some of the main ideas found in her recent book, Translocational Belongings: Intersectional Dilemmas and Social Inequalities (Routledge 2020). The book is concerned with borders and boundaries in social life related to difference and belonging. In the process it engages particularly with central axes of inequality and particularly fixities and fluidities of race, gender and class. Professor Anthias will draw out some of the main ways in which this approach allows us to further a more nuanced intersectional approach and to recalibrate our understanding of social inequality leading to new ways of theorising social stratification and social hierarchy. I will discuss racialisations and sexisms and new forms of border and boundary making in migration and beyond.
