The English Colloquium 

Week 10 

Wednesday 2nd December, 5pm on Zoom* 

Black Lives Matter  

This is the second of two panel discussions, in which staff and students from across the School of Media, Arts and Humanities reflect on how our teaching, learning, research, activism and creative practices engage – in diverse ways – with the anti-racist struggle of the Black Lives Matter movement. This panel will feature a series of short presentations, followed by discussion with the audience. Our hope is that these events can be one of a number of different forums for thinking collectively about how to embed anti-racist work in MAH as we move into the future. All students and staff are warmly invited to participate in these discussions.
