Centre for Black Humanities
The Centre for Black Humanities is a research centre dedicated to researching, writing and teaching the artistic and intellectual work of people of African descent.
Bringing together perspectives from English, Film and Television, History, History of Art, Modern Languages, Music, Philosophy, and Politics, the Centre's goal is to create an interdisciplinary space for the discussion of black thought and the critical study of race, migration, diaspora, transnationalism and globalisation.
The Centre aims to consider the varied and contested meanings of ‘Black’ in historical and contemporary contexts alongside the omission of non-white voices in (local) history and university curricula. In so doing the Centre hopes to begin a dialogue with students, other faculty members and staff around the University and beyond about the place of Black people in higher education.
The Centre acknowledges that Black academics and students are underrepresented in UK universities and is committed to promoting initiatives aiming to increase the number of Black and minority ethnic scholars and students.
