Centre for Black Humanities
Researching the histories, art and thought of people of African descent
The Centre for Black Humanities is an interdisciplinary group researching the histories, art and thought of people of African descent.
We aim to create an international hub for Black Humanities research in the heart of Bristol.
Current interdisciplinary projects include work on Black British Art, African small magazines, and UK Hip-Hop, ethics and social justice, slavery and its legacies, and race and genetics in contemporary fiction.
We are committed to reaching audiences outside the traditional university through a diverse programme of film screenings, reading groups, performances and research collaborations with local communities. Such activities enable our research to generate impact in other areas including the cultural industries and higher education policy.
