Abstract or Description

In this article, David Woodger and Susan Westman discuss issues of race and racism faced by students in Higher Education. They begin by looking at the national picture before presenting their own research from a London university. Their research highlights a lack of attention to issues of race and racism in university teaching and a lack of diversity in curricula and teaching approaches. They finish by presenting a model of experiential group work which they use to grapple with issues of race and social justice, and to promote empowerment and dialogue, with their own students.
