The Race Update series on the RHS blog was authored by Dr Shahmima Akhtar, a historian of race, empire and migration who was Past & Present Fellow for the Royal Historical Society’s Race, Ethnicity & Equality in History initiative from 2019-2020.

The Race Update series offered short pieces on subjects related to race, ethnicity and equality in UK History Higher Education, aimed at those actively engaged in race equality work in the sector.

The updates include appraisals of reports, identifying core strategies, key examples and case studies, and provide summaries on new developments in the field, ranging from recent to more established literature dedicated to race and equality issues.

It offers collective resources to bring together BME staff and students and white allies in the history sector through analysis on key topics and issues.
