      EVENT DETAILS
      Slavery, Memory and Reparations

      PART OF OUR BLACK HISTORY MONTH SERIES Using memory scholarship, Professor Olivette Otele will examine how the history and memory of enslavement shaped questions of identity and citizenship in Europe. In Africa, debates about the origins of exclusion in stratified post-slavery societies have been challenging the mechanisms of marginalisation of people of slave descent. In those contexts, the notion of collective memory is a useful tool to understand demands for reparatory justice, and how these can contradict regional or national policies  based on the commodification of the colonial past (“dark tourism” in particular). A ticket does not guarantee entry. As this is a free event, we over-issue tickets to avoid empty seats. All ticket holders must be seated by 5:50pm, after which tickets will be reallocated to people queuing for returns. For school bookings, please contact us at enquiries@gresham.ac.uk
