The recent Casey Report (DCLG, 2016) which is a review into wider social and cultural opportunities and integration is applicable to notions of race and ethnicity. The three presenters at this seminar, bring their empirical data on these notions within the wider context of Brexit and apply them to different aspects concerning postgraduate issues.
Changes to domestic and international politics are underlining a movement away from acknowledging and celebrating cultural diversity to a nationalism which is monocultural rather than multicultural. Integrationist and assimilationist processes are also changing the ways we are thinking and reflecting upon race and ethnicity (Race and Lander, 2016). The seminar presentations are examining research findings on critical race theory, access and inclusion and institutional racism.
The seminar is open to researchers and professional practitioners in both the sciences and the arts within higher education. The aim of the event is to increase understandings for those of us who are interested in increasing understandings of how race, racism and institutional racism, as well as ethnicity shapes ongoing issues within undergraduate and postgraduate education.
