Still no black in the union jack
3 December 2008
Dr Caroline Bressey (UCL Geography)
Questions of what it means to be British are currently central to political debate. Within these discussions public history and geographies of heritage remain important and contested sites. However, the history of Black and Asian people in Britain remains marginalised within academic institutions and popular debate. This lecture will outline the dangers of disregarding these histories, and the impact it has on who does - and who does not - belong in Britain.
