This is a slightly tricky one as more than one set of words seems to fits the blanks in sentence 1. We need to see what the second sentence says to understand the context. It is clear from sentence 2 that talks of the need to speak with a “lighter heart” that the first sentence is not about the general lack of sensitivity around race, gender and religion in academic circles. So the correct word for blank (1) is sensitivity. Blank (2): Going beyond the pale means going beyond limits of propriety. It doesn’t make sense when used with the word ‘sensitivity’ in blank (1).
