Undisciplined Assembly

Wednesday 01 December 2021, 10.30am, Kensington Picket

Join for a collective reading and discussion of Robin D. G. Kelley’s Black Study, Black Struggle. Written in 2016, we return to this text, its questions and provocations:

  • Can universities ever be engines of social transformation? Or is such work the preserve of political education and activism?
  • What is the point of fighting for equal opportunities in a burning house, on a burning planet?
  • How do we confront competition in the neoliberal classroom?
  • How do we resist depoliticisation masquerading as tolerance, diversity and inclusion?
  • and fundamentally: How can we be in the university but not of the university?
