Open Forum: Racism and the University
29 January 2017
Monday 30th January
Lecture Theatre 2, 11 Woodland Road 1-2pm
Black Arts and Humanities @ Bristol will host an open meeting to discuss the circumstances surrounding recent reports of racial abuse suffered by Bristol students. We are appalled by these accounts and concerned that such incidents can occur.
We welcome the University's announcement that it will be taking 'immediate action', but continue to have concerns about the processes and procedures around reporting, as well as the general climate; we feel that this is an appropriate moment to discuss our response as students and teachers in the Arts Faculty. How can we actively create a climate where racism is opposed?
