What we’re doing (University activity)
The University of Leicester proudly marked a significant milestone on the evening of Tuesday 26 September 2023 with the inaugural Human Library event. The ground-breaking initiative served as a catalyst for meaningful dialogue, enhanced understanding, and the cultivation of empathy within our diverse community of citizens. The Human Library, in its essence, embodies the concept of a "library of people." Each individual who lent their story from our metaphorical bookshelf represented a segment of our society.
The School of Sociology offers a module on Race, Ethnicity and Racisms in Britain (SY1025). It uses the city of Leicester as its starting point and the module aims to develop a foundational understanding of the sociology of race and ethnicity as social constructs, and as one lens through which to better understand social inequalities in late-modern Britain.
