Slavery and Memorialisation Symposium (Edge Hill University, Lancashire)

October 8, 2014

Slavery and Memorialisation: The 3rd Annual Symposium of the Ethnicity, ‘Race’ and Racism Seminar Series, Edge Hill University, Wednesday 8th October 2014

The Ethnicity, ‘Race’ and Racism Seminar Series, formed in 2010, runs throughout the year at Edge Hill University welcoming scholars and leading figures in the fields of research, ethnic relations and policy-making. The committee is dedicated to the exploration and sharing of research, knowledge and debate in the areas of ‘race,’ racism and ethnicity. The annual symposium gives the opportunity to focus upon a topic with current interest or significance where scholars and others can share their perspectives and scholarship. The 3rd annual symposium will focus upon the subject of ‘Slavery and Memorialisation’ and is designed to coincide with Black History Month.

The organisers are delighted to welcome two distinguished speakers for our keynote papers:

Dr Richard Benjamin, Head of the International Slavery Museum
and
Professor Alan Rice, Professor of English & American Studies at University of Central Lancashire and founding member of the Institute for Black Atlantic Research.
