'Where do we fit in'? Black and Asian British History on the Curriculum

The podcast of this week's fantastic event is now available!

A panel of contributors discussed the ways that BME British experiences have been marginalised from the histories taught in schools, and how teachers, scholars, community leaders and politicians can work to ensure that these stories and experiences are taught and understood as British History. 

The IHR will close at 5.30pm on Friday 21 December 2018 and reopen at 9am on Wednesday 2 January.
