Learning Labs

Anticipating Black Futures‘ Learning Labs are intimate intellectual spaces for discussion, knowledge exchange, and development in and around Black Studies. They will be held consecutively on July 9th and 10th 2020 at the Stephen Lawrence Research Centre, De Montfort University, Leicester. 
There are two Learning Labs and each will address different themes and are tailored to different groups. The intention for these Learning Labs is that they will be collaborative spaces where where can learn from one another, demystifying and destabilising elitist knowledge making that often takes place within Universities. Each Learning Lab will have a different focus and will be tailored to different groups. Below are more details about each of the Learning Labs, select one most suited to you. While you are encouraged to only apply for one, applications to two Learning Labs will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
