Event Details

Mainstream publishing and academia have been notoriously undiverse, but now oral historians and a new generation of writers are exploring black British experience and celebrating black British culture in a range of innovative publishing ventures and research projects. Join us to discuss this exciting new development with three people who are playing an important part in shaping it.




The event will begin with a panel discussion between Lemara Lindsay-Prince, commissioning editor of #Merky Books (a partnership between Stormzy and Penguin Random House); Magdalene Abraha, creator of A Quick Ting On, the first nonfiction book series dedicated to black British culture; and Patrick Vernon, who led the successful campaign for a National Windrush Day. It will be followed by an open discussion with the audience, and end with networking and refreshments.





Chaired by Dr Alya Khan, the event launches London Met's new Centre for Life Writing and Oral History (CLiOH).

CLiOH: Centre for Life Writing and Oral History

CLiOH: Centre for Life Writing and Oral History is an exciting new initiative exploring the many ways in which people are now documenting and narrating their lives. CLiOH gives London Met an opportunity to develop its significant expertise in these areas, and to welcome a wide range of local people into the university, deepening our links with the community and demonstrating how our research can serve them.

CLiOH is organised by Professor John Gabriel (School of Social Professions), Professor Jenny Harding (School of Computing and Digital Media) and Professor Anne Karpf (Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design).
