Event description
Creating accessible universities for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic researchers.

About this Event

If you are from a Black, Asian, or Minority Ethnic background and engaged in research study at a UK university then there's a good chance you've had to overcome structural challenges to your study.

Too BAME for a PhD? is organised by current research students based at the University of Leeds, in conjunction with Leeds University Union. It is open to anyone from any university, from a BAME background, who is a current, recent, or future research student. We aim to reflect on the barriers to successful study, develop methods for overcoming them, and imagine a more inclusive University. Above all we hope to create the networks which will sustain us and challenge the status quo.

We will be joined for a keynote by Dr. Katy Sian (York) whose latest book Navigating Institutional Racism in British Universities provides a foundation for our conversations. Earlier in the day, smaller workshops will be led by Dr. Jason Arday (Durham) and Professor Nazira Karodia (Wolverhampton) split into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) and BASSH (Business, Arts, Social Sciences, Humanities) research interests. They will be joined by Namrah Shahid and Afshan Iqbal, current PGRs at Leeds and organisers of this event. There will also be two facilitated networking sessions - one by research discipline and one for all attendees.

Places are free but limited. Attendees can reserve for either workshop plus the keynote, or just for the keynote at which we have a higher capacity. Please only sign-up if you know you're able to attend.
