Mixed up in Classics
Schools and universities in the UK have, by now, all reached the end of the academic year, and have a little bit of breathing space (and a lot of preparation to do) before term starts up again in September. It has been an incredibly difficult year for all involved – including weeks of strikes in higher education against issues such as casualisation, unachievable workloads and pay-gaps, which look set to be exacerbated by the challenges of the next academic year – and there is extreme uncertainty over what the next year will hold. Yet, as we plan for the 2020/21 academic year, it’s important that we keep talking and acting on anti-racism rather than letting it fall by the wayside. I’ve seen lots of informative articles and reports about inclusive pedagogy over the last few months, and this post will collate links to some of those pieces.
