BBA patron Shirley Ann Tate inaugural professorial lecture

BBA patron Shirley Ann Tate, who recently joined Leeds Beckett University as the first Professor of Race and Education, is to deliver her inaugaral lecture on 21st June.

Professor Tate's lecture is focused on the topic of racism and wellbeing universities, which is also the focus of her chapter in a forthcoming book being published by Trentham which was developed through the Black Sister Network: Inside the Ivory Tower: Narratives of Women of Colour Surviving and Thriving in British Academia.

The talk will focus on the negative affect of shame; because of its very unvoiceable but central place in Black women’s experience of racism within academia. The discussion will first look at feelings of shame, before turning to the unvoiceability of negative feelings through institutional silencing. It will finally look at the impact of deracination on Black women academics’ ‘wellbeing’ from the standpoint of having liveable lives at work. 

In addition, Professor Tate will also be launching her (co-edited with Paul Bagguley) new special issue Building the antiracist university. 

Date: Wednesday 21 June 2017

Time: 17:00 – 19:15 (arrival from 16:45)
Location: James Graham, Leeds Beckett University
