"Race" was socially constructed to divide the world, and order human beings into a hierarchy. Whiteness, as an ideology, says that people racialised as white are morally and intellectually superior to other racialised groups. The university has been the primary motor in reproducing this ideology, and this campaign seeks to challenge it. Only by challenging the, often invisible, whiteness which underpins the dominant intellectual culture, can we build genuinely inclusive and progressive places of learning.
