Description

History Education Subject Interest Group

As part of our commitment to our partnership schools, we are inviting secondary mentors, other history colleagues and current beginning teachers to attend our Subject Interest Group (SIG). The idea behind the SIG is to provide opportunities for professional dialogue and development.

'England’s other countrymen' with Dr Onyeka Nubia, University of Nottingham History Department

Dr Onyeka Nubia is a pioneering and internationally recognised historian, writer and presenter who is reinventing our perceptions of the Renaissance, British history, Black Studies and intersectionalism. Onyeka is the leading historian on the status and origins of Africans in pre-colonial England from antiquity to 1603. He has developed entirely new strands of British history which includes Africans in Ancient and Medieval England, and is also an expert on diversity in Tudor, Stuart, Georgian and Edwardian England/Britain. 

In this webinar, Onyeka will explore how Tudors from many walks of life regularly interacted with people of African descent, both at home and abroad, revealing a genuine pragmatism towards race and acceptance of difference. He will argue that many of the ideas associated with modern racism are in fact relatively recent developments. Onyeka will also point us towards resources and reading to help teachers enhance their subject knowledge and prepare for curriculum development.  

Following Onyeka’s talk, Chris Gillmore, Head of History at Queen Elizabeth Academy Mansfield and a University of Nottingham History PGCE Mentor, will present how he has sought to incorporate these themes into his own curriculum.
