This event aims to bring together academics, with an interest in race and ethnicity, to network and develop new research themes that focus on the ways that social, political, and economic relations interact with race and ethnicity in a given society, region, or community.
The roundtable workshop is an opportunity for researchers to network, learn what each other is working on, forge collaborative links, and develop new research themes. The session will begin with each participating member presenting a brief overview of their research. We will then break into small groups based on research interests to brainstorm potential collaborations and new projects. This will be followed up with a summary of the day, and an agenda for future steps.
The mains themes of the day will include:
• Race, ethnicity, technology & the media
• Intersectional perspectives on race & ethnicity
• Issues of identity and development in relation to race & ethnicity
• Issues of race & ethnicity in connection to employment or human rights
• Historical understandings & construction of race & ethnicity
• Issues of racial & ethnic identity & stereotypes
Additionally, any other form of scholarship that focusses on race and/or ethnicity is invited to attend.
The Roundtable is hosted by the Eleanor Glanville Centre, interdisciplinary centre for inclusion, diversity and equality at the University of Lincoln, and led by Equality Project Manager, Dr Nicole Fielding, and Research Fellow, Dr Udeni Salmon.
