Dr Sadiah Qureshi ‘There is Black in the Union Jack: Britain’s Forgotten History’ by the IF Project

Thursday 21st June 2018, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM @ St. Margaret’s House, 21 Old Ford Road, London E2 9P

 

Dr. Sadiah Qureshi’s lecture is the second of three ‘Summer lectures on Inequality’ from The IF Project.

Dr. Qureshi is Senior Lecturer in Modern History at The University of Birmingham. Her research explores the ways in which racialised knowledge is produced, circulated and mobilised in the modern world.

Dr Qureshi is particularly interested in how such knowledge is used to create hierarchies of value between peoples and the legacies of past discrimination in relationship to contemporary issues of equity and social justice.

Dr Qureshi’s first book, Peoples on Parade (2011), provided the first substantial survey of the commercial exhibition of displayed peoples in nineteenth-century Britain.
