THE BLACK-ADEMIC GUIDE TO HIGHER EDUCATION

By Renee Landell

"... If you have an accent don’t shy away from speaking...If you speak other languages, and just basic to no English, you are not illiterate, your bilingual ability is evidence of your intelligence...your name is beautiful! If others can’t pronounce it, never feel that you have to replace it with an English name for their benefit"

DEBRIEF: RENEE LANDELL

by Michele Thiel

"I’d heard about Renee Landell long before I met her. Her reputation as an extremely successful Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) officer for the SU definitely preceded her. Being a member of the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) group myself, it would have been stranger if I hadn’t heard about her."

RHUL Debate Society to host No-Platforming Debate following Katie Hopkins cancellation

Quoted by Michele Thiel

"Free speech belongs in universities because it is essential to democracy. But, free speech, bears responsibility and is therefore limited by hate speech. Opinions are fine. Racism, Islamophobia and the like cannot and should not ever be debated. Discussed, but not debated.”

BLOG: ROYAL HOLLOWAY SAYS NO TO ISLAMOPHOBIA

by Renée Landell

"...When I consider the word ‘phobia’–– an irrational fear or hatred of something/someone­­–– it becomes apparent that there is not only an error with the term ‘islamophobia’ but also an extreme agenda. To have an irrational fear is to be afraid without any justifiable cause, acts of hatred and discrimination towards Muslims because of such a phobia can then only be described as ‘extreme.’"
