The Bartlett is proud to announce the launch of our Race and Spatial Justice Recruitment Focus, welcoming diverse thinkers, researchers, and teachers from across the world to come and work with us. Our mission is to create a world-leading hub of scholarship and practice that actively addresses the interrelations of race, space, and the built environment.

We've identified a scholarly gap that is affecting our ability to fully understand and undo the effects of race and racism in the built environment. The Race and Spatial Justice Recruitment Focus is part of a drive to plug this gap and reorientate us to creating racially just spaces.

- Dr Kamna Patel, Vice-Dean (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion)

At The Bartlett, we are committed to fostering scholarship on race and spatial justice, articulating the effects of race on spaces, and taking steps to undo the harm of racism through our educational offering, research activity, and fair representation in our staff and student community. The Race and Spatial Justice Recruitment Focus is essential to enable us to meet these commitments.

With this recruitment focus, we want to bring new expertise on race and the built environment into our research and teaching programmes, and in the process to work actively across the whole faculty towards a just and inclusive future.

- Professor Christoph Lindner, Dean of The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment 

Through the Race and Spatial Justice Recruitment Focus, we will hire scholars whose work focuses on any areas related to race, spatial justice and the built environment. This may lie within critical race studies, Black feminisms, post colonialism, Indigenous studies, coloniality, decoloniality, or other disciplinary traditions.
