Racism, as embedded in the structures – policies and practices – of our social and political institutions, is institutional racism. It is this type of racism, rather than the overt conscious action of individual practitioners, that is reflected in professional practice and ways of working that result in ethnic disparities. In the context of a pervasive culture of whiteness within predominately white institutions – both in terms of representation (and retention) and knowledge, even the ideas, practices and identity constructions around the whiteness of ‚anti-racist‘ work can and ought to be scrutinied as potentially damaging and unequal for Black/African and minority ethnic people. By focusing on spaces of higher education, we will consider the highly problematic naturalisation of whiteness in institutions and programmes whose faculty representations and whose curricula often reflect the absence of non-white minority bodies, minds and discourses.
