This project examines minority students’ lived experiences of discrimination and marginalisation on higher education campuses in India. As a research network, we will run two workshops and a conference to facilitate academic discussions around religion or belief in the HE sector in India. For further details – https://www.coventry.ac.uk/research/research-directories/current-projects/2020/minorities-on-campus/
For this first project workshop we seek to explore the intellectual paradigms that shape how minority-ness if intellectualised in the Indian HE sector. We welcome your proposals (details of the CFP and key dates to bear in mind are appended below).
Please send us your short proposals by 5th October 2020. Due to the current pandemic we plan to organise this first event virtually, however future network events will be undertaken in person (pandemic permitting!) Future events will examine lived experiences of equality and diversity, as well as possibilities for inclusivity within HE. We will update you about these future event in due course. We will also gradually be building a virtual network of academics and practitioners in this field, so please also get in touch if you would like to be part of this network.
