The first in a new series of public lectures organised and hosted by the Division for the Study of Law, Society and Social Justice (LSSJ) will ask Who is multiracial and why does it matter?

For her lecture, Miri Song, Professor of Sociology in the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, will explore how multiracial identity is defined, and if people of mixed heritage belong to a marginalised group.

Professor Song’s lecture will take place on Thursday 15 June at 6pm in the Moot Court in the Wigoder Law Building on the Canterbury campus. Guests can register for free in-person or live-streamed tickets via Eventbrite. All lectures in this series are free and open to all.

The aim of this new series is to showcase the impact and relevance of research conducted at the University. Across the programme, our academic experts will address topics such as law, race, health, food poverty, equality, environment and criminal justice.

Darren Weir, Director of Lawyering Skills at Kent Law School and Co-Director of Public Engagement & External Relations for the Division, said: ‘We are delighted to launch this new lecture series that will introduce our professors to the public, sharing their insights and discoveries on topics that matter to everyone. We hope that their talks will inspire curiosity, learning and action among our audience.’
