 To coincide with Black History Month, Library Services and Dr. Ilaria Boncori hosted an afternoon to promote a new book: 'Race, Ethnicity and Inclusion'. University of Essex staff and students have contributed chapters focusing on personal experiences, research and academic reflections on socio-cultural, educational and financial issues. A number of contributing authors discussed the chapters they had written, the research they had done and answered questions from the audience.

The range of modules taught at the university that relate to various aspects of Race and Ethnicity was also shared. Below are a select number of those modules that have reading lists that can be found on Talis.
