LUCAS Postgraduate Race workshop

LUCAS Postgraduate Race Workshop 

Monday 5 February, 5-7pm, Workshop Theatre

DO YOU IDENTIFY AS A BLACK AND/OR AFRICAN POSTGRADUATE STUDYING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LEEDS IN THE FACULTIES OF ARTS, HUMANITIES AND CULTURES AND EDUCATION OR IN SOCIAL SCIENCES AND LAW?

WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN MEETING WITH OTHERS FROM A SIMILAR BACKGROUND TO DISCUSS THE POSITIVES AND NEGATIVES OF YOUR EXPERIENCE AT LEEDS IN A FRIENDLY, CONFIDENTIAL SETTING?

LUCAS (Leeds University Centre for African Studies) is conducting confidential research into the experiences of black and/or African post-graduates studying at the University and would like to invite you to a workshop/discussion as co-investigators to understand how well you feel you are supported, academically and pastorally, while studying in Leeds. To begin this process we are inviting you to a two hour workshop on

Monday 5th February, from 5-7pm in the Workshop Theatre.

The workshop will give you an opportunity to meet others in different Schools, to exchange views, take part in some ice-breaking workshop activities, discuss and partake of some light refreshments. Nothing said in the workshop will be recorded and it will be entirely confidential. It will also be up to those attending to decide if further meetings or activities will be helpful. LUCAS staff; Richard Borowski, Jane Plastow, Akin Iwilade and Winnie Bedigen will be working with you to facilitate open and productive debate.

If you would like to attend there is no need to register, just turn up on the day. However, if you would like to ask anything more about the workshop feel free to email Jane Plastow at j.e.plastow@leeds.ac.uk.

The Workshop Theatre is just near the main entrance to the University on Woodhouse Lane (number 61 on the campus map). As you come in at the side of the Parkinson steps the first building on the other side of the road is a large ex-church, The Emmanuel Institute. The next building as you walk into the campus is what looks like a smaller stone church but over the door it says WORKSHOP THEATRE. Come in and go upstairs to the first floor studio. (Don’t worry it’s not an acting session!)

ALL WELCOME
