Brunel University and the Union of Brunel Students have undertaken and funded a #LiberatedLibrary campaign to diversify our library and offer new books by authors from the global south, people of colour, female, LGBT+, and disabled authors. To see a full list of the books ordered please click here.
The campaign also resulted in a number of events and activities focused on highlighting and promoting the work of minorities in the literary world. From our ‘Dear White People’ event to discuss race and ethnicity in health, social care and higher education to the ‘Book Launch and Poetry Slam’ celebrating the outstanding work of our students.
We’ve have many high profile names involved in the series from Daljit Nagra to John Agards.
