    A Conversation on Race and Gentrification: a response to ‘Anti-Racism at SSoA: A Call to Action’

Abstract

My aim for this conversation is to explore and highlight some of the issues surrounding race and class within the built environment. I use my MArch dissertation – ‘Perry Barr: An Exploration of Commercial Gentrification’, which explores issues between commercial gentrification and its effects on community and identity through lived experience. With this as a point of reflection, I aim to present and collaboratively reflect with students at Sheffield School of Architecture on issues surrounding race and equality in the hope of continuing conversation around race and acknowledging the importance of difference. Moreover, the article is used as a catalyst to gauge conversation between students of architecture in relation to race and education. Whilst my time at the School of Architecture has seen efforts to create an inclusive environment, the conversation surrounding race has not been as widely acknowledged.
