In this episode i'm joined by Karl C. Pupé to discuss a debate that has emerged between educators on social media... whether or not teachers should be able to say the 'N' word out loud, if it is mentioned in the literature being explored (e.g. Of Mice and Men).
This conversation is about the importance of understanding the racial trauma experienced in the school space and in particular, through the teacher/student dynamic.

In this episode I'm joined by Dr Javeria Shah, a scholarly activist, academic at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London, and founder of the Social Performance Network project which is a de-socialising activism project.
In this episode we discuss the ever- changing language used to define/categorise racialised communities. Over the last decade the terms BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) and BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) have been used in the UK legislative and political context. In this episode Dr Shah and I critique the use restrictive and homogenising terms that fail to reflect lived realities and embodied identities.
