This event is part of the School of Education's Bristol Conversations in Education research seminar series. These seminars are free and open to the public.
Professor Tariq Modood will give a personal reflection on the two imperial stories he is a part of and the two countries that have shaped him; and what that implies for the arc of history and decolonisation.
Each talk in this series will reflect on the following:
