This series of online panel discussions about the absence of Black UK academics in this area of teaching and research – and the implications of this absence – will culminate in a roundtable and report on the recommendations for how Black British scholars of the present and the future suggest UK universities and funding councils should lift the barriers to Black academics in this field of study in particular, notably as a form of reparative justice.
