In this edited interview, Vron Ware talks honestly about the political inspiration and personal engagement that flows through her entire body of work. From Beyond the Pale (1992) which introduced a new and challenging approach to the intersecting discussions on feminism and anti-racism, to Out of Whiteness (2001) which was written with sociologist Les Back and critiqued what the field of critical whiteness studies had become, to Ware's latest work on Britishness (Who Cares about Britishness? 2007) and the British military (forthcoming). Ware's political, feminist and anti-racist engagement not only keeps her alert and attuned to the undercurrent of racist attitudes in multicultural Britain, but also informs her methodology and her approach to doing research and to thinking through conversations with colleagues all over the world.
