Event Details

Recent protests and discussions about racial violence and inequalities have highlighted the need for further education – but how do we bring Black Lives Matter into our curriculums?

In this webinar, Prof Imogen Tyler, Dr. Sunita Abraham, Geraldine Onek and Jamie Reynolds will share their experience working with a community group, Lancaster Black History Group, including a project working with Lancaster school students and teachers on Lancaster's historical connections to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.

This conversation will highlight the potential to use historical and sociological research to create links across the curriculum, start conversations about contemporary social issues and engage students in seeing the places in which they live differently.

More information about the schools project can be found at Lancaster Slavery Family Trees. Read more information about Lancaster Black History Group.

What makes a memorable conversation? The ‘In conversation’ webinar series will explore how memorable conversations might emerge from putting together different kinds of voices – such as staff, students and teachers from different disciplines and backgrounds? We hope that the variety of themes will engage you in interesting conversations of your own? This webinar series is produced by the Sociology Department at Lancaster University, which is home to degrees in Sociology, Media and Cultural Studies and Social Work, in association with other colleagues at Lancaster University?
