About the event

Black History Revisited is a short course designed primarily to help mature students progress to a degree in the History Department.

This course will provide you with historical knowledge and critical skills to understand contemporary debates around black history. You will explore the value of evidence, ways of interpreting evidence and the role of bias including when approaching historical sources. We will draw on a range of sources around history and memorialisation to unpack the multiple stories offered by widely differing sources. When thinking about historical sources we often refer to archives and documents or books written about a period. Art, literature, film, and music equally tell us much about our past and present. These may also be the only sources available that provide an alternative perspective to narratives written by those in power. This course will help you focus on what makes a historical source.

This course will be led by Dr Edson Burton, with guest lectures by academics at the forefront of research into the history of the transatlantic enslavement of Africans, the sociology of race and post-colonial discourses.
