Car Culture Today (2022)

Taking up an urgent question in light of the relationship between cars and other modes of mobility, this event will put historians and other experts in urbanism in conversation with auto-industry marketing expert Tom Flood.

Participants including Danni Ebanks-Ingram (CIVICSQUARE ), Simon Jackson (University of Birmingham), Daisy Narayanan (Edinburgh City Council), Rachel Lee (Living Streets) will reflect on the question of who public space is for and offer possible answers for 10 minutes each, before we open the discussion to include comments and questions from the audience.

Like the 2021 BRIHC-sponsored public panel on “The Crisis of Car Culture in 21st Century Birmingham,” this event aims to be in dialogue with a broad public audience beyond the university. This event has been organised by the Centre for the Study of North America (CSNA) and the Birmingham Research Institute for History and Cultures (BRIHC). 

The Profits of Slavery and the Wealth of Universities: A Transatlantic Conversation (2021)

The Report on Lord Dalhousie’s History on Slavery and Race, headed by historian and artist Dr. Afua Cooper, was submitted in 2019 at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada. The panel looked into Lord Dalhousie’s views on race and put forward recommendations for how campus might be accountable for past and present connections to anti-Black racism. The University of Birmingham’s Centre for the Study of North America is delighted that Dr. Afua Cooper has accepted our invitation to tell us about the work of the panel she chaired, and engage in dialogue about that panel’s report and its resonance for universities and wider communities on both sides of the Atlantic. Chaired by Dr. Michell Chresfield, this event will begin with a presentation by Dr. Cooper on the Report, followed by dialogue between Dr. Cooper, Dr. Asha Rogers, and Danni Ebanks-Ingram.
