On Tuesday 7 February the Centre for the Global Study of Empire hosted an important talk by Kenan Malik.
The Story of Race: White Supremacy to Identity Politics. Malik challenges the conventional histories both of the idea of race and of the struggles to confront racism.Discussing his new book Not so Black and White, Malik asks: Is white privilege real? What’s wrong with identity politics? And why is it that the more we despise racial thinking, the more we seem to cling to racial identities?
Head of the School of English, Dr Bashir Abu-Manneh introduced the keynote speaker.
