Episode notes

This roundtable is the first event in the TCRU@50 programme of activities celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Thomas Coram Research Unit.

Following an introduction to TCRU’s history, the speakers reflect on race, multiculture, and conviviality in the shadow of Brexit, COVID, and the Windrush scandal, three events that have each exposed and exacerbated racialised inequalities. 


  • Prof Les Back (Glasgow University)
  • Prof Ann Phoenix (UCL, Thomas Coram Research Unit)
  • Dr Sivamohan Valluvan (Warwick University)
