Seminar April 19 2018: An open meeting

Professor Paul Gilroy (King's College London) is one of the world's leading postcolonial intellectuals. Since the 1980s, he has offered incisive critique of both race-thinking and racism, and has broken ground in our thinking about difference.

Works such as There Ain’t No Black In The Union Jack: The Cultural Politics of Race And Nation (Routledge, 1987), The Black Atlantic: Modernity And Double Consciousness (Harvard University Press, 1993) and Against Race: Imagining Political Culture Beyond The Color Line (Harvard University Press, 2001) have become reference points for the postcolonial scholarly canon on race and racism.

Meet Professor Gilroy in conversation with researchers Randi Gressgård (Centre for Women's and Gender Research) Yael Harlap (Department of Education, UiB) and Bjørn Enge Bertelsen (Department of Social Anthropology, UiB). This event is supported by Fritt Ord, and is organized by the Centre for Women's and Gender Research, Department of Education, and Department of Social Anthropology at the University of Bergen.
