Event description

Description

Coming to terms with dark periods in our history has never been easy. In Bristol, there are ongoing debates about the renaming of buildings and removal of statues as the history of the transatlantic slave economy is re-examined.

How can we learn to 'live well' in the present with these challenging periods of history? In this discussion, we will consider this by questioning historical "truths", including generational differences, gender and sex, the Holocaust, and political tension in Taiwan. History is made as personal stories intertwine, and understanding that could help us reconcile ourselves with our past and build bridges between generations in our present.

Please join us for a lively discussion of the opportunities and challenges of reconnecting with our past in the hope of building a brighter future.

Panel members: Chad McDonald, Diana Erandi Barrera Moreno, Doreen Pastor, Milo Rengel and Yung Chen Liu, with Professor Tim Cole, Director of the Brigstow Institute.

Event is from 6pm to 7:30pm, followed by a drinks reception.

Free and open to all.

Accessibility statement: Our understanding is that the venue is largely accessible for wheelchairs, with an accessible toilet, a lift and level access to all areas. Please contact us if you require additional information by emailing research-without-borders@bristol.ac.uk. We are committed to making reasonable adjustments to make the event accessible to all.
