Overcoming challenges in academia: a forum on disability, race and class for prospective PhD students

17.00 – 18.00 Wednesday 28 April 2021

Join us for some short presentations, Q&A, and an open discussion organised by our LAHP Student Ambassadors about some of the challenges we face as ‘non-traditional’ and ‘under-represented’ people in academic spaces. This forum is primarily aimed at those considering doing a LAHP/ AHRC/ UKRI funded PhD from BAME, non-traditional and under-represented backgrounds, but all are welcome.

The forum will be chaired by Vicky Rasbridge, with presentations from Harsha Balasubramanian on disability, Saffron East on racism, Aleida Mendes Borges on being a ‘first in family’ scholar, and Yakim Milev on the transition from post-92 study and professional practice to doctoral research at an elitist university.
