About Dr Remi Joseph-Salisbury
Remi Joseph-Salisbury is a Senior Lecturer in Education and Childhood Studies. His broad research interests span race, ethnicity, (anti-)racism, and education.
Influenced by Critical Race Theory, Remi's work explores the ways in which race and racism is experienced in contemporary 'post-racial' institutions, particularly education.
Straddling the borders between academia and activism, Remi is a founding member of the Critical Race and Ethnicities Network, a board member of the Racial Justice Network, and a steering-group member of the Northern Police Monitoring Project. Remi regularly writes for online and print media, as well as presenting at national and international events.
Through his research and lived experiences, Remi has been interested in mixedness and the experiences of mixed-race populations. Specifically, Remi's forthcoming book (to be published by Emerald in 2018) explores the lives and experiences of Black mixed-race men in the UK and the US. Remi has also published work on mixed-race men's experiences of the family, experiences/perceptions of policing, and experiences of education.
Remi is the co-editor of a forthcoming collection, The Fire Now (Zed), which explores anti-racist scholarship in contemporary times of explicit racial violence. He has also written on racialised masculinities, and racial microaggressions. Through his research and writing, Remi explores the quotidian ways in which race and racism are lived, contested and resisted.
