Social justice, exclusion and white privilege in universities

The eighth annual lecture is delivered by Kalwant Bhopal, Professor of Education and Social Justice, University of Birmingham. The lecture examines recent evidence on the representation of BME staff and students in higher education to explore how racism, exclusion and marginalisation continue to disadvantage these groups.

Professor Kalwant Bhopal uses empirical research which explores BME academic flight from higher education to suggest ways forward for the inclusion of BME focusing on issues of equity and social justice. She examines how white privilege works to disadvantage those from BME backgrounds and will explore how universities can develop good practice for the inclusion of BME groups in higher education.

Professor Kalwant Bhopal's research focuses on the achievements and experiences of minority ethnic groups in education. She has conducted research on exploring discourses of identity and intersectionality examining the lives of Black minority ethnic groups as well as examining the marginal position of Gypsies and Travellers. Her research specifically explores how processes of racism, exclusion and marginalisation operate in predominantly white spaces with a focus on social justice and inclusion. She is Visiting Professor at Harvard University in the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Visiting Professor at Kings College London (Department of Education and Professional Studies). Her most recent book, White Privilege: the myth of a post-racial society was published in 2018 by Policy Press.

In partnership with the British Sociological Association
