What’s Happening in Black British History? A Conversation – WHBBH2 – 19 February Liverpool

Following the success of  What’s Happening in Black British History? A Conversation – WHBBH1– in October,

#WHBBH2  will be held at the University of Liverpool

Thursday 19 February (11am-6.30pm followed by a reception)  

A half term date again because the organisers hope to have as many teachers and students attending as possible.

For this second workshop papers are requested in the following areas:

  • Gender, particularly histories of Black British women and the LGBT community;
  • Education, with a particular emphasis on how to improve the coverage of black British history in schools, colleges and universities. Presentations from those actively involved in creating teaching resources would be particularly welcome;
  • Sport, as a microcosm of the broader politics of race and the construction of black identities;
  • Creative and Cultural Interpretations of Black British History, considering how these histories can be communicated in Art, Literature & Music;
  • Emancipation, examining the agency of Black people in challenging physical and mental slavery and oppression.
  • Local History, and specifically the history of Liverpool.
