BBA Patron and Ivory Tower Co-Editor, Prof Shirley Anne Tate is launching the UK’s first MA in Race, Education and Decolonial Thought, through the Carnegie School of Education at Leeds Beckett University.
The ground-breaking course will be led by research-active academics in the School’s pioneering Centre for Race, Education and Decoloniality, led by Prof Tate.
The programme focuses on developing deep understanding and analysis of race, racisms and decoloniality matters– beyond the US and UK. The course will include real discussions on topics such as inequality in the UK, political developments in South Africa or the #blacklivesmatter movement in the USA. Debates relating to race, racism and decoloniality in modern society have raised the importance of raising awareness of these matters within professional occupations. It will be offered from October 2018.

Commenting on the new MA course, Dr Deborah Gabriel, Founder of Black British Academics said:
“This is an excellent course that not only helps to expand and diversify the curriculum, but can play a key role in equipping professional staff working in equality and diversity roles with a deeper understanding of what are central issues in higher education, not just within the UK, but around the world.”
