Speaker information

Dr Say Burgin, Lecturer, University of Leeds
Dr Kate Dossett, Senior Lecturer, University of Leeds

Say Burgin and Kate Dossett will discuss the framing of equality and diversity issues in British Higher Education around questions of race and gender exclusion. Drawing on both national conversations around gender inequalities in the wake of reports on inequalities by the Royal Historical Society and the Runnymede Trust and their local work on inequalities in higher education they will focus on three particular problems: narratives of progress; the need to collect ever more ‘proof’ that inequalities exist; and the framing of inequalities around individual behaviours. Analysing these narratives and the academy’s investment in them opens up space to discuss who does the work of addressing inequalities and where.
