PART OF OUR BLACK HISTORY MONTH SERIES
Using memory scholarship, this talk will examine how the history and memory of enslavement shaped questions of identity and citizenship in Europe.
In Africa, debates about the origins of exclusion in stratified post-slavery societies have been challenging the mechanisms of marginalisation of people of slave descent. In those contexts, the notion of collective memory is a useful tool to understand demands for reparatory justice, and how these can contradict regional or national policies based on the commodification of the colonial past (“dark tourism” in particular).
Tickets will be available to book from 10am on Wednesday 14th August
