*Save the date*

We are delighted to share that in January 2022 we will be launching the journal, Promoting racial justice in teaching and learning: An edited collection of pieces by students and staff, plus an associated line-up of events: an exhibition, film screening, discussion group and online resources!

The journal itself is a culmination of many months of collaboration between staff and students at the University of Reading exploring the topics of race, equality and inclusion. We are sure you will agree that the end-product is a vital and stimulating collection of pieces.

“This collection, with its combination of reports, reflections on lived experience and creative pieces, aims to be both a way to deepen understanding and to prompt change”

Anne-Marie Henderson – Director of Student Success and Engagement & Dr Eileen Hyder – Centre for Quality Support and Development.

We will be launching the journal in January 2022 via our new collection of web pages on Essentials. These pages will also include new digital articles that support students to engage with our work on inclusion and contribute to the journey laid out in the Race Equality Review.

We want to celebrate the launch of this journal so we invite you to be part of these exciting events:

  • From 24 January | ExhibitionPromoting racial justice in teaching and learning: An edited collection of pieces by students and staff. A thought-provoking exhibition, which draws from collections in the journal. (Library Foyer, free to all)
