I am actually researching for a second PhD. My PhD in science is from Cambridge University (2003). I worked in scientific research (Genetics and Immunology) for many years, before and after the PhD. I love scientific research but decided to leave the lab bench and turn to understanding and researching ideas in Humanities.

Some of the issues currently looked at: Safe spaces, segregation, demands for diversity and promotion of racial thinking are currently seen as good and useful tools to oppose racism in universities and in society in general. Rather than oppose racial divisions, many demand special considerations and protection for each particular identity. Why is anti-racism currently understood this way? Where do the ideas come from? Can we develop other alternatives?

Thesis title 

Transcending racial divisions: anti-racism and identity politics
