Ep. 42: Steven F. Riley is the creator and founder of MixedRaceStudies.org, which since 2009, is the world's most comprehensive non-commercial website providing a gateway to interdisciplinary English language scholarship about the relevant issues surrounding the topic of multiracialism. This site has been called by a preeminent scholar, "the most comprehensive and objective clearinghouse for scholarly publications related to critical mixed-race theory" and by an up and coming scholar “probably the singularly most valuable tool in my work.”
At present, MixedRaceStudies.org contains nearly 8,900 posts which consists of links to 5,100+ articles; 1,200+ books; nearly 600 dissertation, papers and reports; nearly 300 multimedia items; more than 400 excerpts and quotes, and more than 100 course offerings. Currently, MixedRaceStudies.org receives over 2,000 visitors each day and during a monthly period, more than 47,000 unique visitors and 1½ million page views.
Over the past five years Riley has been interviewed on several podcasts, presented and participated at several conferences and festivals including both Critical Mixed Race Studies conferences. Also, he was quoted in NBC News's The Grio (November 2012) and has a recent co-authored article with blogger Glenn Robinson in the Asian American Literary Review Special Issue on Mixed-Race (Fall 2013). Other recent activities include introducing a panel for the 3rd Annual: What Are You? – A Discussion about Mixed Heritage at Brooklyn Historical Society and a quote in Yaba Blay's (1)ne Drop: Shifting the Lens on Race (Philadelphia: BLACKprint Press, 2013).
