Join this LAHP-hosted event for some short presentations, Q&A, and an open discussion about some of the challenges faced as ‘nontraditional’ and ‘underrepresented’ people in academic spaces. This forum is primarily aimed at those considering doing a LAHP/ AHRC/ UKRI funded PhD from BAME, nontraditional and underrepresented backgrounds, but all are welcome.
The forum will be chaired by Vicky Rasbridge, with presentations from Harsha Balasubramanian on disability, Saffron East on racism, Aleida Mendes Borges on being a ‘first in family’ scholar, and Yakim Milev on the transition from post-92 study and professional practice to doctoral research at an elitist university.

For transparency: this forum is organised by current LAHP students in their paid roles as ambassadors.
