About Panagiota Zacharatou
I am currently at Durham University studying Combined Honours in Social Sciences focusing on Politics, IR and French. My foremost interests are in the politics of identity, inequality and polarisation, reflected in my research project exploring Durham's colonialist history and the ongoing effects today. This is titled "Absence/presence of Durham’s Black history: Exploring the Black and/or colonial history of Durham University". I am Head of Events for 'Walk On ', Durham's sustainable and diverse student fashion show raising money for FareShare NorthEast which helps tackle food poverty. I have also been a SolidariTee representative, fundraising for the non-profit organisation which provides legal aid to refugees. I am a keen debater and also enjoy playing the piano, cello and singing. Following completion of my degree, I am looking to do a law conversion course.
