Piloting workshops to explore identity in the classroom
Workshop materials were developed to support MPhil students to explore their identities and how this impacts discussions in class.
Student MSc induction
The RSC has developed a new induction programme for the MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies on the Ethics of and Historicising Forced Migration (SSO required). The programme engages students in a discussion of the ethics of studying forced migration and our positionality as researchers working in this field, a renewed focus on reading and writing skills, and an introduction to historical approaches to the study of forced migration that centres post-colonial and anti-racist scholarship.
The induction was developed by Catherine Briddick, Course Director in 2021/22.
