Introduced by the Vice-Chancellor Professor Louise Richardson, this event will bring together a panel of experts from across the Humanities and the cultural and political sectors to discuss “What does diversity mean to me?”. The panel will examine how diversity and inclusivity has shaped, and will continue to shape, the human experience and identity. We will be joined by Deborah Cameron (Rupert Murdoch Professor of Language and Communication), Ellah Wakatama Allfrey (Author and literary critic), Maria Misra (Lecturer in Modern History), Jay Stewart (co-founder of ‘Gendered Intelligence’), Marvin Rees (Mayor of Bristol) and Miles Hewstone (Professor in Social Psychology). The discussion will be chaired by Elleke Boehmer (Professor of World Literature in English and TORCH Director).
There will be plenty of time for audience questions and discussion, which will be followed by a drinks reception from 7.00-7.30pm. Free and all welcome.
