The purpose of this paper is to introduce the special issue on race and place.
The approach used by the authors is to combine an overview of sociological debates on place within a framework that makes the case for a relational approach to race, space and place.
The overview provides an account of place in sociology, of the relationality of race and place, and the making of race and place in sociological work.
The Introduction sets the papers in context, providing a short account of each of them; it also aims to present an argument for attention to race and place in sociology in a setting characterized by racism and reaction.
The authors thank the reviewers – who the authors cannot name – of the papers in this issue for their thoughtful and helpful comments. The authors also thank Nicole Trulljo-Pagan for reading a draft of this introduction.
