The first in a series of workshops in London organised by the London Education Research Network for Social Justice (LERNS).

Lee Jerome (Middlesex University) and Rita White (Kingston University) present a case study from a super diverse London university, where students simultaneously celebrated the diversity of the institution, but avoided social mixing.

Through focused group discussions, the students struggled to account for the racial and religious divisions they perpetuated through their friendship groups.

This seminar will explore the implications for thinking about diversity and multicultural education.

The London Education Research Network for Social Justice (LERNS) brings together researchers from across London to explore and promote social justice.

The paper will be followed by discussion and exploration of opportunities for collaboration through LERNS.

This is the first in a series of LERNS workshops taking place across London. For further details of topics and venues, contact Lee Jerome.
