INSIDE THE IVORY TOWER: NARRATIVES OF WOMEN OF COLOUR SURVIVING AND THRIVING IN BRITISH ACADEMIA


We are very pleased to invite you to join us for the book launch of ‘Inside the Ivory Tower’ and celebrate this rare opportunity that brings the voices of ten Black British Female Academics to the forefront.


This book places the perspectives, experiences and career trajectories of women of colour in British academia at the centre of analysis, positioning academia as a space dominated by whiteness and patriarchy where women of colour must develop strategies for survival and success. It explores how the experiences of the contributors are shaped by race and gender and how racism manifests in day to day experiences in the academy, from subtle microagressions to overt racialised and gendered abuse.


Presented as a selection of autoethnographies, each chapter touches on common themes such as invisibility, hypervisibility, exclusion and belonging, highlighting intersectional experiences. It is a must-read for anyone interested in equality within and beyond academia.


You can find out more information about the authors, and purchase the book here: http://blackbritishacademics.co.uk/research/inside-the-ivory-tower/


This event is a chance to meet nine of the academics involved (listed below). It will be a celebration of the book and the authors, with refreshments, a panel discussion and an opportunity to buy a signed copy of the book.*
