Following the launch of the Royal Historical Society’s Race, Ethnicity & Equality in UK History: A Report & Resource for Change, there will be a panel discussion with Margot Finn, President, Alana Harris, Honorary Secretary, and Sadiah Qureshi of the Society’s REE working group.
The Report was produced by the Society’s working group on Race, Ethnicity and Equality, and documents and assesses both the significant underrepresentation of Black and Minority Ethnic students and staff in UK History programmes and the extent to which bias and discrimination feature in university-based History. It offers discipline-specific recommendations and resources for change. The Race, Ethnicity & Equality report forms a key part of the RHS’s 150th anniversary programme—offering a critical analysis of past practices, and an agenda for transforming them.
The panel discussion will be followed by the symposium After Multiculturalism? Conversations between History and Sociology: http://www.pearsinstitute.bbk.ac.uk/events/events-calendar/after-multiculturalism-conversations-between-history-and-sociology/
