ISOS Panel Discussion: Experiences of Black Academics in the UK’s HE Sector

This virtual panel discussion will be hosted by the Institute for the Study of Slavery (ISOS) and the Department of History on the experiences of black academics in the UK.

This event comprises a panel of five Black academics from a range of scholarly disciplines who will discuss their personal experiences of learning and working at universities across the UK. More specifically, they will engage in a dialogue concerning their encounters with Black-centred research agendas, teaching and issues relating to the wider operation of universities. The speakers will also deliberate the types of changes that are most likely to create a more supportive environment in which Black members of staff and students can thrive.

  • Dr. James Dawkins (Chair of the Panel Discussion and Research Fellow, University of Nottingham)
  • Dr. Jonathan Ashong-Lamptey (Founder & Managing Director of Element of Inclusion)
  • Dr. Meleisa Ono-George (Associate Professor and Director of Student Experience, University of Warwick)
