Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference


After Multiculturalism? Conversations between History and Sociology marked the beginning of a year-long 'Decolonising Europe' seminar series that Camilla Schofield and Rob Waters organised, with the Raphael Samuel History Centre. The series asked leading scholars from Britain, across Europe and the US speak on race, decolonisation and difference in postcolonial Europe.

In the first session, in three dynamic conversations, established and emerging international scholars of contemporary Britain discussed the past and present of ‘multiculturalism’; the shifting politics of class, race and difference in post-1968 Britain; and the role and responsibilities of anti-racist scholarship. Speakers included: Marc Matera, Radhika Natarajan, Sivamohan Valluvan, Jon Lawrence, Satnam Virdee, Mike Savage, Bill Schwarz and Kennetta Hammond Perry.
