New Perspectives on Black British History Concerence


21-22 October 2017

Venue TBC


History Matters and The University of Chichester in association with Every Voice invite paper proposals for the New Perspectives on Black British History Conference which will take place on the 21-22 October 2017 (venue tbc). Proposals for papers are due on Friday 28th April 2017.


What are the latest research findings in Black British History?  How are young and emerging scholars of Black British History, particularly those of African and Caribbean heritage, pushing the boundaries of knowledge and redrawing the field? How can such historical research inform the teaching of history in schools, encourage an understanding of a more inclusive British history and the engagement of more young people of African and Caribbean heritage? What new and innovative teaching methods are being employed in schools? Through a series of presentations, discussions, and short films, this two-day conference seeks to address those questions.
