This Easter Term we had a thrilling set of CRASSH Impact events on Law, Race, Gender and Public Policy (2 – 4 May 2017), starring Patricia J. Williams (Columbia), one of the most stirring theorists of law and race in the USA today, along with Paul Gilroy (King’s College London), Britain's most distinguished theorist of race, and Heidi Safia Mirza (Goldsmiths), a pioneering researcher into race, faith and gender.
On 4 May 2017, feminist professors of colour Patricia Williams and Heidi Mirza debated Black life, law, love and survival in times of Trump and Brexit. The discussion was chaired by Sarah Franklin (University of Cambridge).
Other events in the Law, Race, Gender and Public Policy series included the launch event, In Conversation: Paul Gilroy and Patricia Williams (2 May 2017), and a public lecture by Patricia Williams (3 May 2017).
