Dismantling The Master's House - UCL
“Dismantling The Master’s House is a community of academics, administrative staff and students at UCL, committed to righting racialised wrongs in our workplace and in the wider world. We owe the phrase ‘The Master’s House’ to Audre Lorde and we understand The Master’s House to consist in an intersection of power
structures, in, as bell hooks puts it, Imperialist White Supremacist Capitalist Patriarchy. Central to this analysis is how these different manifestations of domination are accumulated to construct Whiteness – which has been and continues to be the primary vehicle of domination for the British Empire, and its legacies. Through scholarly comment, public events, and social media, #DTMH interrogates both Whiteness and Anglocentrism in the academy, while presenting alternatives from among the diversity of voices which make up UCL, London, and
the globe”. For more details visit: http://www.dtmh.ucl.ac.uk/
