'Race and Justice' 2022-23 event series launches

The events explore racisms, oppression, violence and injustice across the world, and are supported by the British Society of Criminology.

Following the resounding success of the 2021 Race and Justice events series, Birkbeck’s Department of Criminology are running new events for the academic year 2022-2023. 

Ten events will cover topics including: state racism; Islamophobia and counter-terrorism; sex-work; global hierarchies of victimhood; institutional racism in criminal justice systems; processes of criminalisation; state violence; crimmigration; borders and migration.  

The series is organised by Dr Monish Bhatia, Lecturer in the Department of Criminology at Birkbeck, and supported by the Race Matters Network (part of British Society of Criminology). All events are hosted online, free to attend, and open to the public. 

Dr Bhatia comments, “The aim of this international seminar series is to create a critical forum for academic researchers, students, artists, campaigners and activists, and members of the public, to increase awareness and foster meaningful conversations regarding racisms, oppression, violence and injustice globally.  

The series was well attended last year and the feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive and audiences found it to be important, urgent and educative. We have therefore decided to continue into the current academic year and have planned a series of events that include single topic talks and panels, running up until June 2023.” 

For an insight into topics covered previously, here’s a list of events that have taken place already in 2022:
