Passing In: Access and influence in higher education

Event Details

  • Event date: 21/11/2018
  • Venue: Wilkins Buildings, University College London

A study day exploring gender equality at UCL since the 1860s, featuring a re-enactment performance of prospective students’ admissions experience before 1919. Set against the turbulent backdrop of women’s fight for equality in Britain, we invite reflection on the hidden ‘passing-in’ rules still in place for women and minority groups in higher education.


This event is co-conceived and produced by Dr Georgina Brewis, UCL Institute of Education and Dr Nina Pearlman, UCL Culture. It is a collaboration between a number of academic modules and is supported by Institute of Advanced Studies, UCL Culture UCL Press, UCL Institute of Education and UCL Special Collections.
