We expect UCL, the proud ‘London’s Global university’, to be a space where students are able to explore different perspectives, white and non-white.
However, the reality is far from this. Our curriculum places Western and Eurocentric thinkers above others and as a result fails to appreciate the contributions from non-white thinkers.
Blackademia provides a platform to Black academics to share their thoughts on the White curriculum.
Together we will create a safe space to share our experiences of discrimination, discuss the ‘White curriculum’ problem and suggest ways to liberate it.
Join us for what we hope to be an empowering conversation.
