Research Seminar - Coretta Phillips (LSE), Characterising the 'Pains of Racism' in Young Londoners' Lives: Depth, Breadth, Looseness and Tightness
Room S2.12 Law School, Social Sciences Building

Dr Coretta Phillips, London School of Economics and Political Science

Characterising the 'Pains of Racism' in Young Londoners' Lives: Depth, Breadth, Looseness and Tightness

This paper applies an analytical framework developed by sociologist Ben Crewe (2011, 2015) to understand the experience of imprisonment to better conceptualise the intricacies of racialized social relations in the lives of young minority ethnic Londoners. While not assuming a straightforward parallel between systems of penal power and racial power, the notions of depth, breadth, looseness, and tightness can be used to better capture both the materiality and ontological elements of racial domination as felt and enacted by those on the receiving end. It is in the integration of structure and affect that the greatest promise for challenging racial conditions in society that harm, denigrate and degrade, can be found (Bonilla-Silva 2019).

Coretta Phillips is an Associate Professor (Reader) at the LSE. She is involved in teaching both Social Policy and Criminology in the department at BSc and MSc level and is a member of the Mannheim Centre for Criminology.
