Event description
The Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies (CCDS) and the National Maritime Museum will host its fourth ‘Diasporic Dialogues' Conference.

About this Event

Confirmed Keynotes: Professor Christina Sharpe (York University) and Dr Nicholas Draper (UCL, Centre for the Study of the Legacies of British Slave-ownership)

CCDS’ Diasporic Dialogue conference series aims to extend our understanding of diaspora, to connect diasporas and, in the process, to forge new critical directions. This year, our two day conference takes up questions of slavery, about which, notably, UK universities have been overwhelmingly silent. Given the UK’s history of prestigious institutions and their entanglement with the ‘profits of racial slavery’ alongside its centuries-long established black presence, this conference intends to a) question practices that serve to inhibit such necessary intellectual labour b) connect related theorising and practice, especially that centring the Caribbean region, North America, Africa and Europe and c) bring into relation the past centred on slavery, the present built on continued racial inequalities normalised through practices of slavery and colonialism, and the future burdened, already, with pressing issues of restorative justice and equity.
