Interview with Couze Venn on Ash Amin and Racism

 Simon Dawes interviews Couze Venn on the TCS Special Section of responses to Ash Amin's article 'The Remainders of Race'.

Couze explains the importance of Amin's challenge to conventional approaches to racism, summarises the responses made by Denise da Silva, Abdoumaliq Simone and Ali Rattansi, and argues for a further consideration of the role played by inequality, and how Foucault's 'discourse of race war' helps us understand this.
