Opening event in TORCH Headline Series exploring 'Humanities & Identities'
Maria Misra (Associate Professor in Modern History) speaks at the TORCH Annual Headline Series Launch Event 2017. Funded from the Vice-Chancellor’s Diversity Fund and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, TORCH’s Annual Headline Series for 2017 is Humanities & Identities. The series will focus on multiple research areas relating to diversity including race, gender, sexuality, disability, poverty, religion, class, and inequality. Introduced by the Vice-Chancellor Professor Louise Richardson, this opening event brought together a panel of experts from across the Humanities and the cultural and political sectors to discuss "What does diversity mean to me?". The panel examined how diversity and inclusivity has shaped, and will continue to shape, the human experience and identity.
