These student led discussions seek to disrupt the Whiteness of the discipline of Geography. By doing so, we hope to create spaces for Black geographers (students and lecturers alike) to be able to share their experiences and thoughts on urgent issues.

On our first panel, Dr. Pat Noxolo (Senior lecturer, University of Birmingham) and two students will be sharing their thoughts on the question: “What can academic geography learn from Black geographies and Black organising? And how can we avoid co-optation?”. All are welcome! This talk is informal, will not be recorded and those attending can bring their lunch too if they wish.

Please fill out your email address on this Google form to be able to receive the Zoom link on the morning of the event: http://shorturl.at/tzCNV .

About Dr. Pat Noxolo: Dr. Noxolo is a Senior Lecturer in Human Geography at the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Birmingham. She is also lead researcher on the Leverhulme-funded Caribbean In/securities and Creativity (CARISCC) research network, co-editor of Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers, and secretary of the RACE group of the Royal Geographical Society. As one of the most significant voices in debates on postcoloniality within contemporary Geography, Pat’s scholarship spans international development, cultural geography, and studies of security and insecurity. She has written extensively on race, postcolonial theory, and cultural practices including dance and literature. In addition, Pat recently became an AHRC EDI fellow, and is developing a project called Creative Approaches to Race in the Caribbean and the UK (CARICUK) which includes a series of artistic provocations exploring racism as a form of in/security.

We look forward to seeing you there!
