Race and Resistance

r r poster website


Join a community of staff, students and activists engaging with the rise of, and resistance to racial hierarchies in Oxford and beyond.  


Launched in January 2013, the Race and Resistance programme brings together researchers, students, and activists in the history, literature, and culture of anti-racist movements across the modern world. 

Our programme actively challenges all forms of racism and hierarchy, and connected inequalities. We seek to facilitate informed conversations about race, racism, resistance, and liberation within Oxford and beyond. 

We meet most Friday lunchtimes during term time, with sessions taking a variety of formats, including facilitated discussions with students, researchers, and activists, lectures by invited speakers, short research presentations, seminars discussing pre-circulated texts from a range of disciplines, book launches, and film screenings. 

All are welcome to attend, and to get involved!
