Colonial Countryside: Heritage Research and ‘Cancel Culture’

A live webinar with Q&A on Tuesday 30 March 2021 16:00 GMT.

Historian Dr. Yewande Okuleye will talk to Professor Corinne Fowler about Colonial Countryside, a child-led history and writing project guided by a team of historians. The project explored connections between ten National Trust houses, the East India Company and transatlantic slavery. Join Corinne and Yewande as they discuss this work, the National Trust’s 2020 report on its houses’ colonial links, and the reception they received.
