UEL Many Voices Reading Group welcomes Dr Karen Lipsedge
Dr Lipsedge will share how she runs the Kingston University Reading Group
UEL's Many Voices Reading Group welcomes Dr Karen Lipsedge of Kingston University to share how KU's reading group is organised. Dr Lipsedge will also lead a discussion on the following readings: 'In My Country' by Jackie Kay and a selection from 'Citizen VI (On the train the woman standing)' by Claudia Rankine.
Dr Lipsedge is part of the Directorate for Student Achievement team at KU, where she works as a senior adviser for teaching and learning. She is also KU's chair of Race Equality Charter SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) and acts as an informal critical friend for several UK HEIs (Higher Education Institutions), giving advice and support with race equality work.
UEL's Many Voices reading group formed in 2016. The group aims to bring many voices, from within and outside the University, into academia for dialogue, collaborative learning and sharing. The group is now run by Anna Caffrey, senior lecturer within the School of Health, Sport and Bioscience.
Kingston University Reading Group was also created in 2016 as a means of facilitating discussion on culture and identity to promote race equality and enhance their work to embed EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) at the heart of the institution. The reading group provides a space to talk about race, using shared reading and discussion to promote cultural competency and cultural diversity.
Book your attendance via this link. This group is open to UEL staff, students and community members.
Please contact A.Caffrey@uel.ac.uk if you have any queries.
