Following the success of our previous events in London, Liverpool, Bristol, Preston, Huddersfield and Leicester, we would like to invite you to the eleventh of the Black British History Workshops (WHBBHXI), which will be held at University of London- Garden Halls on Thursday 14th November 2019. 

The aim of the series is to foster a creative dialogue between researchers, educationalists (mainstream and supplementary), artists and writers, archivists and curators, and policy makers. It seeks to identify and promote innovative new research into the history of people of African origin or descent in the UK and facilitate discussion of the latest developments in the dissemination of Black British history in a wide variety of settings including the media, the classroom and lecture hall, and museums and galleries, thus providing an opportunity to share good practice.

We welcome proposals for papers and presentations on a wide variety of themes relating to the history of people of African origin or descent in the UK. This time we are particularly interested in featuring Queer Black British History, the role of Food in Black British History, and projects that digitise Black British History, making it more accessible to the public online. 

We would be delighted to hear from researchers, educationalists, archivists and curators or others interested in offering a presentation, lasting for 15-20 minutes. 

Please submit a title and a brief description of your presentation to Dr. Miranda Kaufmann by Monday 16th September 2019.

For complete details on submitting your paper for consideration, please see the CFP document.
