In this article we highlight the changing geographies of race and racism, from the era of European colonialism to the present. We emphasize the co-constitution of race and space and highlight how epistemological understandings of 'race' greatly inform racist practice. Our objective in this article is to consider the legacy and malleability of racial discourse and how the construction of 'race' has material consequences. Special emphasis is placed on eugenics, racial formation theory, and critical race theory.
