Race and Resistance across Borders in the Long Twentieth Century event – May 29 in Oxford

TORCH

Launched in January 2013, the Race and Resistance network brings together researchers in the history, literature, and culture of anti-racist movements in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, the United States, and beyond.

We meet every Friday during term-time, with sessions taking a variety of formats, including lectures by invited speakers, short research presentations, seminars discussing pre-circulated texts from a range of disciplines, book launches, and film screenings.

All are welcome to attend.

The interdisciplinary research group ‘Race and Resistance across Borders in the Long Twentieth Century’ brings together researchers in the history, literature and culture of anti-racist movements in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, the United States, and beyond.

Events will take place in the TORCH Seminar Room, 3rd Floor of the Radcliffe Humanities Building, Oxford University (unless otherwise stated), and lunch will be provided at the lunchtime meetings.

Chaired by Tiziana Morosetti (University of Oxford), the round table discusses contemporary attempts to re-enact ‘human zoos’ and their artistic politics after the much-criticised and eventually cancelled performance of Brett Bailey’s Exhibit B at the Barbican in 2014. Are re-enactments of ‘human zoos’ useful/desirable? Do they effectively tackle racial politics? Are we, as one petition stated, justified in censoring them when they risk being racially offensive?
