CRASSH Impact was a series of free public lectures and seminars at the University of Cambridge. The event series was funded through a grant from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). Any enquiries can be directed to enquiries@crassh.cam.ac.uk.


Our Impact speaker this Michaelmas Term was Professor Homi Bhabha from Harvard, one of the foundational figures in postcolonial studies. He participated in two events in Cambridge in November 2018.


Our 2018 Easter Term Impact speaker was Reni Eddo-Lodge, whose Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race won the 2018 Jhalak Prize for the best book by a British BAME writer.


Sara Ahmed has become one of the best known feminist theorists of this generation through her publications, her blogs and her activism. She gave the CRASSH Impact Lectures during Lent Term 2018, continuing CRASSH’s commitment to exploring issues of race and gender, with a special focus on policy and social action.


The great Sinologist from Harvard, Michael Puett, presented the CRASSH Impact Lecture on China and policy during the Michaelmas Term.


In the Easter Term 2017, we had a thrilling set of 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.
