Implementation and potential challenges:

  • Engagement and resources in terms of staff and students to organise and promote if in addition to curriculum content.

How to Use:

  • Staff or PhD students with an interest in race could coordinate a reading group of their own either by using an example syllabus provided, or by creating their own reading list.
  • Introductory sessions for doctoral researchers could emphasise the value of such sessions for developing thought and critiques around race.
  • Get in contact with the library to help promote and provide the readings.
  • Secure a community space to hold regular reading groups.
  • This could also be a recruitment tool, to encourage undergraduates interested in race to pursue postgraduate study.
