Birkbeck Geography and Critical Race Theory webinar: 'Online learning for black students/staff: reflections on a COVID-induced semester'

Venue: Online

This event has ended.

For the first in our new online webinar series on Geography and Critical Race Theory, we are delighted to welcome Dr Patricia Noxolo (University of Birmingham).

This webinar series explores critical race approaches to Geography, addressing questions of racism, imperialism, decoloniality and resistance across spaces and places. In the context of the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement, and against a backdrop of recent comments by the UK government’s Exchequer Secretary on the teaching of Critical Race Theory, this is a key moment to revisit, understand and apply the extensive scholarship which has taken place within this framework.

  • Dr Patricia Noxolo -

    Pat Noxolo’s research brings together the study of international development, culture and in/security, and uses postcolonial, discursive and literary approaches to explore the spatialities of a range of Caribbean and British cultural practices. Her recent work has focused on re-theorising Caribbean in/securities; theorizations of space in Caribbean literature; Caribbean laughter and materialities; re-thinking the decolonial city; and African-Caribbean dance as embodied mapping. Pat Noxolo is lead researcher on the Caribbean In/securities and Creativity (CARISCC) research network, funded by the Leverhulme Trust. She is chair of the Society for Caribbean Studies, co-editor of Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers, and secretary of the RACE group of the Royal Geographical Society.
