Project Details


The project Building the Anti-Racist Classroom (BARC) ran a 2 day intensive workshop at Queen Mary University London in October 2018. This event brought together academic staff, students and professional staff to share challenges and strategies regarding anti-racist practice in higher education. The event was sold out and participants attended from across the UK, Denmark and Brazil.
The project secured prestigious funding from the Society for Advancement of Management Studies (£2000), the Centre for Research in Equality and Diversity at QMUL (£1000), and the QMUL Environment Fund (£4,972)

Key findings

This event started the building of a network of students, scholars and professional staff working toward conceptualising and building the anti-racist classroom in higher education. Interest was garnered from further institutions who would like to host a BARC workshop. It has also led to a series of collaborative research-based writing projects among the members of the BARC collective, and among its participants.
