Workshop: Challenging our Past for an Inclusive Future

Date: March 1 - 2022

Students and staff from across Scotland will come together on Monday 25 April (14.00-16.30) for a special workshop to examine and support anti-racism practices in arts, humanities and social sciences.

Hosted by QAA Scotland as part of the Anti-Racist Curriculum Project, and building on resources produced in 2021, the workshop will be a supportive space to help attendees look at personal preconceptions and institutional biases that are often informed by historic structures of racism and inequality.

The session will be led by Dr Peggy Brunache, a lecturer in the history of Atlantic slavery at the University of Glasgow and the first Director of the newly established Beniba Centre for Slavery Studies. Dr Brunache’s media appearances in the UK and US include the Discovery Channel, BBC Television, UK’s Channel Four and she is a regular contributor to BBC Radio Scotland’s programmes.

The workshop promises to be a highly interactive session that will leave participants equipped to continue to create a more inclusive community in higher education.
