The theme of anti-racist pedagogies was raised by students at the 'Decolonising the Academy: Student Experience' event held in March 2021. In response to this, the Decolonising the Academy Collective at Birkbeck, have organised an event exploring the challenges and opportunities of designing and delivering Anti-racist pedagogy in the Academy today.

Professor Heidi Mirza will provide the keynote address at the event, and she will be joined by Dr Wayne Mitchell from Imperial College and Patricia Gilbert from Birkbeck.

The Decolonising the Academy Collective at Birkbeck is a new initiative emanating from the Birkbeck Institute for Social Research, which builds on the earlier work of the Decolonising the Curriculum Working Group at Birkbeck. Our aim is to develop creative, innovative and transformative learning spaces tasked with liberating the academy from the legacies of colonialism and empire.
