What is the History of Racialization Group?

The History of Racialization Group (HORG) is an interdisciplinary reading group formed by graduate students and junior faculty at the University of Victoria's Department of History in 1995. It meets on a regular basis to discuss readings on the historical constructions of "race", racialization, and racism. In addition to serving as a discussion group HORG also organizes speakers on racialization-related topics and develops public history projects. In 1998 HORG convened, "Making History, Constructing Race" an international and interdisciplinary conference on race, racism and racialization at the University of Victoria.
