From Rhodes to Churchill: Empire, Race and Commemoration
This panel brings together writers, researchers and campaigners who have been engaged with the challenging question of how to engage with Britain’s imperial history in unflinching and truthful ways. What are the politics of erecting or pulling down statues? How do we illuminate the history of buildings and institutions, from universities to museums and banks, in relation to slavery and colonialism? What are the links between commemorating empire and racial justice? How do we tell the stories of iconic figures without shying away from unpleasant or unpalatable realities? The panel will consider how we can engage bravely and properly with history at a time when culture wars are being fomented by vested interests who have economic and political power.
