Following the success of our previous events in London, Liverpool, Bristol, Preston and Huddersfield, we would like to invite you to the ninth of the Institute of Commonwealth Studies’ What’s Happening in Black British History Workshops (WHBBH9) at Senate House, London, on Thursday 8th November.
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.
As this year is the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Windrush we will have a panel on the Windrush Generation and their impact on Britain. We will also have panels on Dramatising Black British History, Guided Tours of Black British History, and, new for WHBBH9, a New Publications showcase.
The day will run from 10.30am to 6.30pm, followed by a Book Launch of Kwaku’s Disrupting African British Histories? and Reception. There will be a registration fee of £24 (£12 for students/unwaged) to cover the costs of lunch and refreshments.
