Provocation one: Racialised Consciousness

The Provocations series began with a pilot session in July 2021 led by Dr Lucienne Loh from the Department of English with a seminar themed on “Racialised Consciousness”.

Lucienne is a specialist on postcolonial identity and immigrant subjectivities. She explored with NHS researchers the concept of “racialised consciousness”, or what it means to be both self-conscious about one’s racialised self and the racialised perspective of others.

How does/can “racialised consciousness” affect NHS clinicians’ interactions with their patients? And how can structures and practices throughout the NHS themselves reflect greater racialised consciousness?
