UCU Day of Action Against Workplace Racism: Decolonising Education (rescheduled)

Tuesday 8 May, 16-17, in 50 George Square, Project Room 1.06.

This event was initially planned as part of the University and College Union’s (UCU) national day of action against workplace racism in February, but had to be postponed due to the snowstorm. While the snow stopped us then, we are going ahead with the event now – because antiracism matters not just one day a year!

In this event on the theme of Decolonising Education we will discuss how to organise for a truly inclusive education. We have four fantastic panellists lined up, who will share their experiences and lead discussion:

Radhika Govinda, Lecturer in Sociology (University of Edinburgh)
Diljeet Bhachu, PhD researcher in Music (University of Edinburgh)
Diva Mukherji, co-founder of LiberatEd and EUSA VP Education (Edinburgh University Student Association)
Rianna Walcott, PhD researcher in English Literature (King’s College) and co-founder of Project Myopia

The event will consist of introductions by the panelists on what decolonising education means for them, and then we will open up discussion to other participants.

Everyone is welcome – students, staff, members and not-yet-members of the union – so please join us! Tuesday 8 May, 16-17, in 50 George Square, Project Room 1.06.
