2014 was a great year for Black British History: I'm sure 2015 will be even better.
You can help make this happen, by getting involved in the second What’s Happening in Black British History? event, #WHBBH2, which will be held at the University of Liverpool, on Thursday 19th February 2015.
- 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.
The full Call for Papers can be downloaded here.
The deadline for submissions is 10th January: that is, this Saturday!
All we need is 300 words or a blog or video explaining what you want to say.
Please also feel free to circulate the CFP to others who might want to get involved.
