Experiences of Black Academics in the UK Higher Education System
A virtual panel discussion exploring university life for Black staff and students in the UK, recorded in 2020 as part of a series of events ISOS curated in response to the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, in the wake of multiple deaths including that of George Floyd.
This recording comprises a panel of five Black academics from a range of scholarly disciplines (including history, economics, political science, and anthropology) who will discuss their personal experiences of learning and working at universities across the UK. They deliberate on the types of changes (cultural, structural, administrative) that are most likely to create a more supportive environment in which Black members of staff and students can thrive.
