Black in Geography Friday 7 May, 1–2pm, on Zoom (the link will be circulated closer to the time) With Dr. Jazmin Scarlett (Independent Researcher)

This will be the second session in a student-led series of talks in which we invite Black geographers (lecturers and students) to speak on Whiteness in the discipline and how to disrupt it. We are also interested in foregrounding Black voices and experiences.

Theme to be discussed: “The role of colonialism in natural hazards and disasters”.

Jazmin will discuss this prompt alongside undergraduate student Temitope Bolaji and 3rd year PhD student Frédérique Fardin.

All are welcome to this informal conversation. Please feel free to bring your lunch!
