NAVIGATING WHITENESS – IN ACADEMIA

Race Reflections ACADEMY is launching BITE SIZE courses!

BITE SIZE courses are high impact, topical and practical introductions to inequality, injustice and oppression related subjects which should take no longer than 2 hours to complete.

For our first BITESIZE course we will tackle whiteness head on. And specifically whiteness in academia.

This course is aimed at students of colour and those who support them including; lecturers, counsellors, parents and others interested in their welfare and achievements. The course will cover conceptualisations of whiteness, challenges in academic spaces as well as resistance and self-care strategies.

Upon completing this course participants will be able to;

  • Better understand how whiteness/racism are conceptualised and their manifestations in academia
  • Assess the impact and lived experience of students of colour
  • Use and apply practical strategies to mitigate adverse psychological consequences and practice self-care
