Information Dates and Enrolment

Download course information in PDF format


This course is suited to anyone who wants to have an open and honest discussion about the often polarizing issues concerning race and identity in contemporary society. The sessions will be inclusive and accessible for all. You do not need an academic background to participate, but you will be expected to contribute to discussions. On completion of this course, you will better understand how the concepts of both ‘Blackness’ and ‘Whiteness’ have come about and how they are reproduced and maintained through our media and culture. You will learn through a mixture of short presentations, weekly discussions, personal anecdote, and through the analysis of specific music videos, written texts and documentaries. Furthermore, you will be equipped with the necessary language and key concepts to discern the complex nature of how identities are formed.

End of course requirement: a ten-minute presentation on an aspect of your identity.

How will I know how I am doing?

There is no formal assessment as this course is based on developing your knowledge and in participating in open discussions. There will be an element of peer and tutor feedback on your individual 10 minute presentation.

Entry Requirements

There are no requirements for this online discussion based course, other than access to a computer and the internet. Everyone with an interest in this topical subject is welcome.
