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.
