We’re very excited to have the wonderful Dr Arianne Shahvisi and Dr Xine Yao joining our symposium as keynote speakers. Dr Shahvisi teaches ethics and medical humanities in Brighton, and is deeply involved in campus and community activism, focussing on gender, race, migration, and academic freedom. Dr Xine Yao is a lecturer in American literature at UCL and the co-host of PhDivas, a podcast about academia, culture, and social justice across the STEM/humanities divide.
If you’d like to join them as a speaker, you can apply to participate to a panel. We can’t stress this enough: you don’t need to be an academic in order to do this. The symposium will be a time to share, think together and listen to each other.
For the specifics of what we have in mind, you can have a look at our official Call for Panellists. If you have any questions or you’re not quite sure whether you fit the bill and can’t face to fill in a Google form, we’re with you! Get in touch with us through our Contacts page. We’re a friendly bunch.
We’d love to hear from you. Really.
