A few weeks ago, I posted an “introduction” to critical race theory list. Here is a more comprehensive list that includes some postcolonial works as well. This list is incomplete and you might find some authors have competing, if not completely opposing methodologies. This list also includes works that are transnational, as race theory is currently moving towards a politics of globalization and transnationalism.
This list is by no means everything that is out there — but it is a broader list for those who want to read beyond introductory material.
