Black Studies Reading Group

The Black Studies Reading Group offers a critical and creative space to discuss the work and writings of authors/activists of African descent. We are based in the History Department and open to both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as staff and those outside of the university. Through virtual and (someday) ‘real’ meetings, we aim to build a community of people who want to be committed to critical engagement with Black intellectual production, in all its forms.

We will meet regularly to engage with readings and creative performances that deal with Black history, culture and politics. It is our intention to centre the long history of Black communities in Britain (and wider Atlantic region) as well as its its diverse diasporic articulations. We very much welcome your suggestions for readings, talks and events in this collaborative space! We particularly welcome students and staff of colour to join our group.
