Event description

Description

Cumberland Lodge, the charity that empowers people, through dialogue and debate, to tackle the causes and effects of social division, is preparing to launch its 2019 report on Difficult Histories & Positive Identities. This marks the culmination of a 12-month Cumberland Lodge project.

This Cumberland Lodge Report investigates how engaging with difficult histories can help us to shape the positive identity of citizens, and to create meaningful feelings of political and social belonging. It draws on the wisdom and experience of an interdisciplinary representation of academics, policymakers, business leaders, NGOs, community practitioners and activists, and young people, from across the UK.

The aim of this evening is to share the report widely amongst policymakers, academics, practitioners, the media and the public to help promote positive action.

The author of our report is Cumberland Lodge freelance research associate Dr James Wallis, Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Exeter.

We will be welcoming an expert panel of speakers who will share their thoughts on the report and take part in a Q&A session. This will be followed by a drinks reception for all guests. The launch will start at 6pm and end by 8 pm. The dress code is smart.

Our panellists include:

  • Nick Dennis, Director of Studies, St Francis' College

  • Professor Martin Daunton FBA, Emeritus Professor of Economic History at the University of Cambridge

  • Dr Ellen McAdam, Director at the Birmingham Museum Trust

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Emily Gow, Programme Officer, on egow@cumberlandlodge.ac.uk.
