IAS Project Workshop – Exploring the Absence/Presence of Durham’s Black History – Workshop 1
January 31 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
As part of the IAS Development Project, ‘The Absence/presence of Durham’s black history: An exploration of institutions, archives, students and pedagogies’, this workshop will focus on the concept of ‘absence/presence’ and explore the expertise and knowledge across the university on the theme in relation to Black history. The idea is to gather insights and expertise through conversation, with contributions from colleagues and students across the faculty. This symposium builds on a symposium on decolonisation in Sociology and will allow us to rethink institutions, concepts, methods across disciplines and beyond academia and allow us to question our known disciplinary parameters. The meeting will be chaired and moderated by Nayanika Mookherjee (Anthropology) and me (History).
