Black Studies Reading Group
During the 2019-20 academic year I directed a reading group for PhD students on the Black Studies programme at the University of Nottingham and students/staff also completing projects in and around Black Studies. Funded by the Student Experience Fund and a grant from the Centre for Research in Race and Rights, the reading group began in person and eventually moved online due to COVID-19.
The purpose of the reading group was to introduce new students from disparate disciplines to texts in and around Black Studies. We gathered monthly to discuss and dissect these texts, learn from one another and build scholarly community. See below for the reading group syllabus:
