Dismantling Racial Inequality in HE

12 April 2016

Dismantling Racial Inequality in HE, What Next?

The panel discussion will bring together early-career and experienced senior researchers with an aim to consider the scope for developing more inclusive structures regarding the participation of BME individuals within Higher Education (HE). The panel discussion will examine how impactful research can continue to be generated within this area by utilising the views of academics regarding this discourse. The panel aims to provide progressive recommendations in attempting to dismantle racism within the academy and wider society more generally.

Academics on the panel discussion will be providing short 10 minute talking points on an issue of race within education or society, which will provide an opportunity for audience engagement and discussion. The event will address racial inequality within HE and other racialised contexts within education, such as dominant Eurocentric practices within teacher education, society and schooling. Issues around social justice will also be considered.
