In this Teach-in we will explore dynamics and refusals at work in anti-racist pedagogies in traditionally white disciplines of Eighteenth-Century Studies, Romanticism, and Nineteenth-Century Studies. 

v What are persisting points of obscurity in praxis aiming to be fully anti-racist and how might these be addressed?

v What is in danger of being ‘redacted’ (Christina Sharpe) as white fields incorporate Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and decolonial studies? 

v What must be continually divested in anti-racist pedagogical praxis?

10am-12pm Plenary talks and Discussion  

v Global Literatures & Cultures in the Romantic Period Editorial Collective
