Dr Manny Madriaga presenting keynote speech

Dr Manny Madriaga will be presenting a keynote speech on 18 June at the Advance HE Equality Diversity and Inclusion Colloquium: Pedagogies of Liberation: Challenge, change, compassion, collaboration.

Keynote abstract

As a racially ethnic minoritised university staff member working in higher education, I find it difficult not to get caught up in despair. Colleagues are unable to see the academy as a site for utopian transformative change. If not a site for change, why do we persist in anti-racist work and persevere with equality diversity inclusion and race equality in the academy? The question being raised in this interactive keynote with the audience is the extent of hope we have for anti-racist change in the academy. The significance of this question is timely considering recent pushback of EDI and anti-racist work in the academy across the Atlantic in the USA.
