Create arts and science series

Report recommendation: The creation of a creative arts and sciences series (under the auspices of the new centre), with performances, events and lectures ranging from poetry to film-making to medical and scientific research relating to both historical and present-day slavery, but also to research areas connected with issues arising from the heritage of slavery.

Create arts and science series

The work of the newly established Glasgow-Caribbean Centre for Development Research will include hosting events and activities to raise public awareness about the history of slavery and its impact around the world.

In advance of establishing the Centre, the University hosted two events which attracted significant audiences - a conversation with Jamaica‚Äôs Poet Laureate Lorna Goodison, hosted by Professor Louise Welch, and a lecture by Professor Selwyn Cudjoe on his book Slave Master of Trinidad, hosted by Dr Stephen Mullen. 

The School of Humanities hosts a series of events, insight talks and public lectures throughout the year, including the annual James McCune Smith Lecture.
