Decol Anth @ Gold
Co-founder of Decol Anth reading group

Alongside Dr. Gabriel Dattatreyan and Dr Julia Sauma, I co-founded the decolonising anthropology reading group in the Department of Anthropology at Goldsmiths University which is funded by the department. We host regular reading groups which bring together members of the department learning community to critically engage with key questions concerning the discipline in relation to the world we share. I assisted in the setting up of the reading group and a decol anth library, creation of a reading list for the group, and facilitation of the sessions.

Decol Anth @ Gold
Editorial Board Member

I am part of the Editorial Collective for the DecolAnth @ Goldsmiths site. The site aims to host a dialogue about decolonisation and its relationship to anthropology as an academic discipline. Within the editorial collective I assist in managing the back-end of our website, generate ideas for content, identify and invite guest contributors, and take part in collective discussions about decolonisation.

I am a co-director of the LSFRC, an organisation of SF scholars and fans which is led by graduate students and activists based in the UK. We host monthly reading groups, an annual conference, and a series of other SF events throughout the year which are attended by people from all over the world.

In my role as research assistant for the Off-Centre project, I worked with Dr EJ Gonzalez-Polledo and PhD candidate Yathu Yogarajah to create a project which explores the social justice potential of decentralised technologies. I assisted in successfully applying for funding from the Digital Worldmaking stream at Goldsmiths, reformulated our project to an online website as a result of covid-19, created and managed our website, and interviewed activists working with/on technologies.

I worked within a small team to deliver active bystander training to hundreds of students at Goldsmiths University to aid students in identifying instances of sexual violence and harassment on campus, and empower them to positively and safely intervene. In addition to my role as a facilitator, I collated and analysed student feedback data using GSheets, assisted in a curriculum review to ensure our curriculum was engaging and inclusive, and was accepted to co-present a paper at the ‘Calling Time on Sexual Misconduct‘ conference at UCL.
