Read at Leicester: A Panel Discussion on Race and Identity in Contemporary Britain

Posted by rmt22 at Jan 11, 2019 11:30 AM |
Come along to our event on 29 January where we welcome the editor and some of the authors of The Good Immigrant, one of this year's Read at Leicester books.

We are excited to announce that Nikesh Shukla, Darren Chetty, Salena Godden and Wei Ming Kam, will join us for an honest and lively discussion about their writing and some of the themes presented in The Good Immigrant.

The Good Immigrant is a powerful collection of personal essays that reflect on the complexities and nuances of race and identity in 21st century Britain, and the University of Leicester has been proud to gift the text to staff and students through our Read at Leicester initiative.

Bringing this conversation about race and identity to the wider University is vital to our Equality and Diversity commitments for the year, which aims to open up an honest conversation about race and Identity at the University, and continues work which was begun through the inclusive curriculum project.

The event is open to all of our students and will take place in the George Davies Centre, at 5pm, on Tuesday 29 January.
