About this event

As we build up to the second international Working Class Academics Conference on 13/14 July 2021 #wcconf21 we are inviting people to come together in this safe, facilitated, online space, where everyone is equal as thinkers.

Each Chai Conversation begins with a gentle provocation - a stimulus to get us thinking. This month's provocateur is Saleem Seedat, Chaplain of Blackburn College.

Using ThinkingEnvironment processes we will then let the conversation gently unspool...

All you need is a willingness to listen and faith in a process that will create a safe space for you to speak.

Chai Conversations is one of a number of initiatives designed to welcome new, perhaps less confident or marginalised working class voices to this year's #wcconf21 programme. See also the #ChaiAndChat podcast series, available on Spotify and Anchor.

Listen to our first podcast guest, the brilliant Dr Teresa Crew here. This podcast is the first in a short series running up to the 2021 Working Class Academics Conference. Teresa talks both about her experience of the conference last year and her book: Higher Education and the Working Classes: Precarity and Diversity in Academia.
