Historicizing History: Empire, Education and Decolonising History at LSE (provisional)
- This project, led by an International History Master Student, seeks to foreground an ongoing commitment to recognise and redress the impacts of imperialism and colonialism - the historical antecedents of institutional racism (inequalities) - within LSE (Department of International History) since its shaping in the 20th Century by conducting historical research; consulting archives, academic inputs and consulting departmental syllabi; creating a media project (short film if possible, otherwise a blog) and panel discussion based on the project's findings. Funded: research books, communication, film, panel.
International Model NATO 2021
- A team of seven dedicated, hardworking, and diverse LSE students will represent Germany and its policy positions at the International Model NATO Conference this Feb. They are preparing the material and will each negotiate on policy committees at the conference, held over zoom this year. Model NATO is a major forum at which to practice policy work skills, which are complementary to their studies, and to build a foundation for their careers. Funded: administrative fees for registration.
The LSE Mental Health Collective Take Over
- After the success of running LSE's first mental health festival in 2019 with the help of the SUF fund, the Mental Health Collective is planning to host a second, awareness raising week in March 2021 (mainly online). This week will be a creative exploration of mental health and well-being within the student community. By discussing intersections of identity and experience, they will raise awareness about the different aspects of mental health.
