Film Screening: We Are Many
Jan 27 @ 8:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Film Screening: We Are Many @ Scotland | United Kingdom

Critical Mass unites cyclists the world over, every last Friday of the month.

The concept is simple; bring your bike and ride through the city streets, reclaiming the space, getting to know the city, meeting other cyclists and generally having fun. There are over 300 critical mass rides over the world each month so join in and get your wheels in motion.
As they say, we have nothing to lose but our chains!

PhD in an Hour: Teaching for a fairer society? Primary schools and multiculturalism @ Royal Dick, Summerhall
Jan 31 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
PhD in an Hour: Teaching for a fairer society? Primary schools and multiculturalism @ Royal Dick, Summerhall  | Scotland | United Kingdom

One PhD student, one fascinating topic, one café, one hour. Enjoy a cup tea while a PhD student shares his/her interesting findings and groundbreaking ideas. The aim is to demystify the PhD process and make it accessible to all.

This month PhD student Ania Byerly will be hosting, “What do primary school teachers in Scotland think about multicultural and anti-racist education?”

Multicultural schools are a fact and so is racism and discrimination of minorities in our society. What teachers do everyday in their classrooms and what they are told they should be doing through policies is often debated. Ania Byerly, PhD student with the University of Edinburgh, examines teacher attitudes to diversity and looks for examples of practice where all children are encouraged to be open, kind, ready to be citizens of the world, questioning and critical of prejudice and discrimination they all see daily in their lives. Ania believes school is not only for teaching children how to read and write and confront this view with those of primary teachers themselves.

Join Ania in discussing ideas and approaches towards creating a fairer Scotland. Let’s make this PhD in an Hour event as multicultural as our schools!
