Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to introduce the special issue on race and place. Design/methodology/approach: 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. Findings: 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. Originality/value: 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.
