ISOS events

 

The Institute for the Study of Slavery (ISOS) organise a range of events including guest lectures, panel discussions, workshops, and international conferences exploring historical and modern slavery, and forced labour, alongside related issues such as systemic and systematic racism endured by African Diaspora.

The team and their collaborators are currently working on a series of virtual events throughout the 2020 Autumn Semester for Black History Month+ because we believe Black Lives Matter beyond Black History Month.
