Public Lecture, Hull University

Complaint as Diversity Work, Mary Wollstonecraft Lecture

The lecture explores how complaint can be understood as a form of diversity work, as what you have to do in order to make institutions more accommodating. The lecture draws on written and oral testimonies provided by those who have made complaints within universities including complaints about racism, sexism, sexual harassment and bullying. The lecture addresses the difficulty of making complaints and asks how and why complaints are often blocked. The lecture shows how we learn about power from those who challenge power.
