Research Supervisor Seminar Series 

Supervising across difference: How do identities, embodiment and heritage inform the supervisory relationship

Target Audience: 
University staff involved in research supervision (either formally or informally)

Process:   Webinar - Panel presentations and discussion

Course Description

This workshop session discusses the rewards and the challenges of navigating supervisory relationships with supervisees who come from very different backgrounds, or have very different identities, from our own.  This session covers the basics of what we, as supervisors, need to know to be in compliance with the Equality Act, but also thinks more immediately about how we can support our students who may be facing prejudice, and how we might ensure that our students are aware of, and do not replicate, structural inequality.

This session is aimed at all PhD supervisors. 


Dr Onni Gust, Assistant Professor of History
