Finally, here is the Book Bloc Syllabus (doc format). These books were requested as t-shirt prints for the Black Lives Matter/Why Is My Curriculum White related academic protest. Feel free to use and expand for teaching, research, further protest. The book bloc inspired a column by AAG president Mona Domosh. It can be read on the AAG conference blog here. We (Kathryn Yusoff, Anja Kanngieser and Angela Last) will also be discussing some of the on-going issues in our RGS-IBG session ‘Not Drowning But Fighting: Decolonising the Anthropocene’ (1-4 September in Exeter, UK).
The RGS-IBG is also supporting the founding of a RACE (Race, Culture and Equality) Working Group. If you are interested in joining the group, please get in touch with any of its current organisers: Richard Baxter, Caroline Bressey, Margaret Byron, Tariq Jazeel, Patricia Noxolo, Wendy Larner, Angela Last, Parvati Raghuram, Divya Tolia-Kelly and Kathryn Yusoff. We will be having our second meeting to discuss aims and formalities at the RGS-IBG Annual Conference (date/time TBC).
Lastly, I have joined the Global Social Theory website team as an associate editor. This website is an initiative and resource to diversify the university curriculum and to question the knowledge politics in general. Please help the website grow by submitting an entry for a theorist, concept or topic.
