Avenger of the Week | Professor Lawrence Black, University of York

This is what GenderAvengers dream of! When our Avenger of the Week Lawrence Black, Professor of Modern History and Head of Department, and the other organizers of University of York’s Brexit and History Conference were made aware that the speaker list was all male, he postponed the conference! You heard that right: he made no excuses and no promises to do better next time, simply admitted that #manels are wrong and don’t reflect the values of his department.


Three cheers to Professor Lawrence and the University of York Department of History.

When @UniOfYork professor Lawrence Black heard about the #manel his department put together, he postponed the entire conference until he could right the wrong. Three cheers for our #AvengerOfTheWeek! #manels #genderavenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/avenger-of-the-week-professor-lawrence-black
