Date:                     3 July 2014

This round-table discussion considers the histories, connections and disconnections between groups and peoples which mainstream society frequently classes as ‘outsiders’. Taking Becky Taylor’s new book Another Darkness, Another Dawn, A History of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers as its starting point, speakers will explore the experiences and prejudices that have shaped the lives of marginalised groups in twentieth century Europe including Roma, Jews, refugees and homosexuals.

 

Through a wide-ranging discussion they will explore societies’ omnivorous appetites for prejudice, the different kinds of prejudice that have existed over time and ask, why is opposition to prejudice so selective?

 

Becky Taylor is a Wellcome Research Fellow at the Pears Institute for the study of Antisemitism, her research centres on the relationship between the state and minorities and discourses of inclusion on marginal groups. Matt Cook is a cultural historian specializing in the history of sexuality and the history of London in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Jessica Reinisch focuses on the migration and displacement of populations in post-war Europe and issues of nationalism, ethnicity and race.

         

          A wine reception will follow the discussion.
