The Academy: In Black and Whiteness
We're pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for PhD students: a three-part course called 'The Academy: In Black and Whiteness’.
Funded by Midlands4Cities, this course will engage with the learning and insight needed to interrogate and deconstruct whiteness in the academy. It responds to calls from both students and wider society to take an anti-colonial approach to the education system, curriculum and institutions.
This course will walk towards difficult conversations that we usually avoid as knowing how to have these discussions is important if we really want change. In doing so we can work on the global challenge of eliminating racism and centring anti-racist practice. The course will also question the goal and meaning of allyship.
Please note this course is intended for PhD researchers.
