The Racist Case for Diversity?

Cornford, Tom (2019) The Racist Case for Diversity? Contemporary Theatre Review, 28 (4). pp. 553-556. ISSN 1048-6801

Abstract

This short article responds to a notorious incidence of racism in a British theatre review from 2018 to argue that diversity initiatives in the British theatre have failed to challenge the assumptions of white supremacy at the level of narrative and discourse and have thereby not only acted as a fig-leaf for systemic racism, but have actively sustained it.
