Event description
The Insitute for Colonial and Postcolonial Studies invites you to a talk entitled "Heritage and the Environment".

About this Event

This is first in a series of "environment talks" hosted by the Institute for Colonial and Postcolonial Studies (ICPS) at the University of Leeds.

Author and academic Corinne Fowler will be in conversation with land rights activist Josina Calliste, co-founder of Land in our Names (LION).

Professor Corinne Fowler is author of Green Unpleasant Land: Creative Responses to Rural England’s Colonial Connections (Peepal Tree, 2020) and directs ‘Colonial Countryside: National Trust Houses Reinterpreted’. She co-edited the National Trust report on its houses’ links to colonialism and historic slavery (September, 2020).

Josina Calliste is a health professional and community organiser. After burning out of academia, she began thinking more deeply about food growing and land justice. Under an apple tree in June 2019, she co-founded Land in Our Names (LION), a black-led collective addressing land inequalities affecting black people and people of colour's ability to farm and grow food in Britain. She loves forest walks and hopes to one day set up an eco-village.
