About this Event

To celebrate the launch of Angela Saini's ground breaking and timely new book: Superior: The Return of Race Science , 5x15 presents an evening on the theme of intersectionality.

Angela Saini is a science journalist, broadcaster and author. Superior is an astute examination of the re-emergence of scientific research into racial differences. At a time when racialized nationalisms are a resurgent threat throughout the world, Superior is a powerful reminder that biologically, we are all far more alike than different. Saini is author of the previous cult book: Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong and the New Research That's Rewriting the Story.

Nikesh Shukla is the award winning writer of novels, short stories and television shows and the editor of the essay collection, The Good Immigrant, where 21 British writers of colour discuss race and immigration in the UK. He is also host of The Subaltern podcast, an anti-panel discussion.

Roma Agrawal is a multi-award winning structural engineer, who spent six years working on The Shard, Western Europe’s tallest building. In her new book Built, Agrawal takes a unique look at how construction has evolved.

Writer, director Amrou Al Kadhi is the leader of renowned drag troupe Denim and author of the forthcoming memoir Unicorn, about having a fragmented intersectional identity, the power of drag, and the lifelong queer search for belonging.

Subhadra Das is a historian, comedian, writer and museum curator of science at UCL culture - she uses museum objects to tell decolonial stories in engaging and affirming ways.
