Situated within a critical race theory and postcolonial feminist framework, Sian thoughtfully centres the voices of the interviewed academics, and draws upon her own experiences and reflections through a critical auto-ethnography. Navigating Institutional Racism in British Universities unpacks a range of complex and challenging questions, and engages with the way in which racial politics in the academy interplay and intersect with gender. The book presents a textured narrative around the various barriers facing academics of colour, and enhances understandings of experiences around institutional racism in British universities. Alongside its conceptual and empirical contribution, it develops a series of practical recommendations to encourage and facilitate the active participation of academics of colour in British universities.
