To mark the end of the CARICUK research project, a series of online events focusing on transforming academic institutions and promoting Black scholarship and creativity will be held over the next two weeks.
The four online events will include the chance to meet the creative scholars behind the website, Global Black Geographies Zine, a prototype website for a multilingual platform spotlighting critical Black scholarly interventions; a roundtable discussing the stories of Black students whom UK universities fail to retain and what higher education institutions can do to retain Black students; and a discussion with Dr Tia-Monique Uzor, the director of the CARICUK commissioned film, The Nosie My Leaves Make. The final event will be live streamed from the Society’s Ondaatje Theatre with speakers Rita Gayle, Dr Tia-Monique Uzor and Dr Pat Noxolo reflecting on the lessons learnt through CARICUK and opportunities for future creative approaches.

Led by Dr Pat Noxolo, the AHRC funded Creative approaches to race and (in)security in the Caribbean and the UK (CARICUK) research project aims to transform discussions about race and anti-racism in UK higher education institutions. Last year one element of the project was the installation of Dreading the map, an original artwork by visual artist Sonia E. Barrett, at the Society’s building in South Kensington.
