The Black Jacobins Revisited: Rewriting History

On Sun 26th and Mon 27th October, Dr Louise Hardwick will participate in The Black Jacobins Revisited Conference jointly organised by the Universities of Glasgow and Liverpool and the Liverpool International Slavery Museum and supported by a UK Arts & Humanities Research Council grant held by Dr Rachel Douglas.

The event will be an invaluable opportunity for Louise to hear international speakers presenting the latest research on C.L.R. James and the Haitian Revolution, material which will inform our joint research project, and which Louise also teaches at Undergraduate and Graduate level here at Birmingham.
