CRT Reading Group
The Critical Race Theory Reading Group launched in February 2019, and is a joint collaboration between Leeds Beckett University and the University of Leeds. The group is chaired by Katucha Bento and Sharon Anyiam, two Black women dedicated to research and activism in Decoloniality, Gender and Queer Studies from the perspective of Critical Race Studies.
The Centre for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (Leeds Beckett University) and the Centre for Ethnicity and Racism Studies (University of Leeds) aim to use this reading group to foster a space where PhD students and academics can engage in dialogue about issues of intersectional racism in wider society. We acknowledge that this space is part of a historical construction of academics of colour who created the CRT Reading group, in 2006. The meetings were focused on discussing the work of CRT scholars in its intersections and interdisciplinarity. The category of readings will go beyond the academic formality, involving poetry, music, working papers and classic literature of CRT.
Friday 14th June meeting
This meeting of the CRT reading group will discuss the awarded book Black Mixed-Race Men: Transatlanticity, Hybridity and 'Post-Racial' Resilience by Remi Joseph-Salisbury.
The discussion will focus in particular on Chapter 4, "Black Mixed-Race Men and PRR in the Face of Racial Microagressions", which is available to read online.
Please email Katucha Bento if you would like to attend.
