In May, I was fortunate to sit on a panel of early career researchers organised by Jason Arday that was looking to provide critical interventions to the question: “Dismantling Racial Inequality in Higher Education: What Next?”
Following these conversations, Leeds Beckett University put together video clips of each of our talks with the plan of making a learning toolkit.
My own talk was on “Negotiating academia as a Black feminist native informant” (watch for the inevitable Lemonade reference).
All of the speakers and links to the talks are provided below:
Early Career Panel:
- Adam Elliot-Cooper | Race, Education and Society
- Nadena Doharty | Racial microaggressions during Black History in schools
- Azeezat Johnson | Negotiating academia as a Black feminist native informant
- Remi Joseph-Salisbury | The function of racial microaggressions in academia
- Emma Newman | Discussing issues of equality and diversity within initial teacher training
- Prof Kalwant Bhopal | Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) and BME academic flight from UK higher education
- Prof David Gilborn | How media/politics have adopted a position that rules out critical race conscious analysis in society and education
