TCCE Lunchtime Social: Creative Writing for Research Equity

Event Details

10th December, 2020
13:00 - 14:00

Throughout this academic year TCCE will be working with our Associate, Pauline Rutter on a programme of work that considers social justice and equity within higher education, with particular reference to the Research Excellence Framework. This strand of work forms part of our response to the Black Lives Matter movement, and is underpinned by our longstanding commitment to use our resources to platform a wide range of voices, experiences and points of view, and to address challenging questions in inclusive and creative ways. You can read Pauline’s first blog for TCCE here.

This creative writing workshop led by author and academic Olumide Popoola and TCCE Associate Pauline Rutter is the first in a series of events that invite extended questioning about social justice and equity in Higher Education.

It will take a playful approach to exploring the voice and language of our creative selves while bringing to life personal interpretations of this moment in time.

The underrepresentation of black and mixed ethnic women in academic publishing reflects the startling fact that in 2019 there were still only twenty five Black female Professors in the UK . What does this mean in terms of the voices and perspectives that are being less heard in and beyond HEI’s?

This lunch time session is primarily for black and mixed ethnic women PhD students, researchers and professors, and creative and cultural professionals who work in collaboration with the academy. It is an opportunity to enjoy a purposeful space for experimentation, sharing and discussion around the creativity and personal rhythm of writing. How might this feed into resilience and confidence alongside publishing aspirations for those within and connected to HEI’s?
