Are We There Yet: Mapping Scotland's Contemporary Memory on its Slaving Past
When & Where
Our popular lecture series returns with a talk by Dr Peggy Brunache, Lecturer in the History of Atlantic Slavery and Director of the Beniba Centre for Slavery Studies at University of Glasgow:
The UK is still grappling with a crisis of conscience over questions of whether to preserve or dismantle celebratory monuments and memorials of nation’s investment in slavery and structures of racial inequity. While Scotland, in particular, is finally beginning to explore its own role in the transatlantic slave trade and Atlantic slavery, this presentation will assess what that means for local and national heritage, how we should remember it and what do to about the legacies that still plague us.
