There is no need to write alone!  We build this conference together, we write this conference together, we make space to be together. Come along whether you want to know how to write, what to write or just to find a place where you can write.

As we build up to the second international Working Class Academics Conference on 13/14 July 2021 #wcconf21 we are inviting people to come together in this safe, facilitated, online space, where everyone is equal as thinkers.

Each Chai Conversation begins with a gentle provocation – a stimulus to get us thinking. Our provocateurs are (or have been) Amanda Price/Pam Fricker (March), Asma Ahmad (April), Saleem Seedat (20th May) and Dr Morag Rose (17th June).

Using ThinkingEnvironment processes we will then let the conversation gently unspool … All you need is a willingness to listen and faith in a process that will create a safe space for you to speak.

Want to know more? Contact or @loumycroft on Twitter or email us via the website.

Chai Conversations is one of a number of initiatives designed to welcome new, perhaps less confident or marginalised working class voices to this year’s #wcconf21 programme. See also the #ChaiAndChat podcast series, available on Spotify and Anchor:
