Learning Labs (upcoming)

8th - 9th July, 2020

The Anticipating Black Futures initiative is an interdisciplinary learning and research project that centres the development of a Black studies network under the premise of a central organising theme of Black futurity. The initiative will challenge the canon of academic hegemony by prioritising the development of Black Studies scholarship in Britain. It uses innovative strategies for knowledge exchange that centre Black researchers and our critical research around race, culture and identity. We intend to raise the profile of Black UK-based academics and create a network of Black researchers within and without the academic institution, encouraging dialogue between academic scholars, independent researchers, community activists, and creative practitioners. The initiative addresses the increasing demographic of Black undergraduate students by elevating research that reflects their cultural heritage and in turn can inform their modular curriculum. It has been funded by the Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership.
