This chapter provides a genealogy of the term ‘racialisation’, and outlines some of the main ways in which it has been understood and deployed from its origins through to neo-Marxist and intersectional approaches, and beyond. Racialisation is not a single analytic; it covers a number of different strands that are or can be interrelated, but also competing and point to different aspects and features of race making. The key issue is how to advance a notion that is analytically powerful as well as situationally complex to the multiple intersections of race in which racialisation is a multiple, ongoing, and intersected process, and racial practices and racial meanings can encompass struggles over subjugated identity positions and racial categorisations.
