The inaugural Dr Azeezat Johnson Annual Workshop takes place on Thursday 25 August, organised by the Society’s Race, Culture and Equality Working Group (RACE).
The Society’s annual conference theme this year is Geographies beyond recovery. One of the guiding questions for the conference is ‘What conditions enable people’s survival and resistance, and the rebuilding of places and environments that support the flourishing of life?’.
This question resonates with Dr Azeezat Johnson’s praxis and unwavering political commitment to an ethic of care. The workshop therefore takes up this question with a focus on early career researchers (ECRs) and pre-career researchers (PCRs – undergraduates and postgraduates).
The workshop includes two sessions from 12.00noon - 4.00pm via Zoom:
Supporting the flourishing of Black life (12.00noon -1.45pm) an informal problem-discussion space for PCRs and ECRs of colour to share their aspirations, insights, and experiences. The discussion will be supported by members of RACE as part of efforts to reconstruct higher education environments so that PCRs and ECRs of colour can flourish.
Survival and resistance in the academy (2.15pm – 4.00pm), taking up the theme of ‘survival and resistance’ with short talks from RACE members, including reflections on Dr Johnson’s pioneering scholarship, followed by an open discussion.
If you have questions or topics for discussion that you would like to raise, please contact the RACE Secretary James Esson.
