What’s Happening in Black British History? VIII

Following the success of our previous events in London, Liverpool, Bristol and Preston we would like to invite you to the eighth of the Institute of Commonwealth Studies’ Black British History Workshops (WHBBH8) at The University of Huddersfield, on Thursday 10th May 2018.

The aim of the series is to foster a creative dialogue between researchers, educationalists (mainstream and supplementary), artists and writers, archivists and curators, and policy makers. It seeks to identify and promote innovative new research into the history of people of African origin or descent in the UK and facilitate discussion of the latest developments in the dissemination of Black British history in a wide variety of settings including the media, the classroom and lecture hall, and museums and galleries, thus providing an opportunity to share good practice.

The day will run from 11am to 6.00pm, followed by a Reception. There will be a registration fee of £20 (£10 for students/unwaged) to cover the costs of lunch and refreshments. A limited number of travel bursaries will be available to independent speakers on application.
