Reminder: Annual lecture

Close-up 1

A reminder that our annual lecture takes place on Tuesday 30 April, 5.30pm, in lecture theatre G15 of the Muirhead Tower.

The speaker is Catherine Hall (UCL), and her title is Reconfiguring race after slavery: the stories the slave-owners told. You can read more about it here or by clicking the image. Please register to attend (it’s free, but it helps us order the right amount of wine for the reception) by emailing Charlotte Heap.

‘Only see how neatly I take it out of his pocket’, the gentleman on the left is saying, as he slips a cool £20 million from John Bull’s back pocket, ‘We Whigs are dapper hands at taking swag’. The image is a detail from a cartoon entitled  Slave emancipation: or, John Bull gulled out of twenty millions.
