Ethnic Community Histories in the Midlands

Edited by Malcolm Dick (University of Birmingham) and Rajinder Dudrah (University of Manchester)

You are cordially invited to the launch of a special edition of the journal Midland History, a collection of ten essays which explores the histories of ethnic communities in the Midlands between the 17th century and the present. Contributions focus on Black, Asian, Irish and Jewish experiences within the region. The authors use different approaches to investigate the past, including archival research, oral history, the analysis of film, photographs and popular music and cultural geography:

This edition has been published with the support of the Marc Fitch Fund. 

Copies of the publication will be available for purchase. There will be complimentary wine, soft drinks and light refreshments. This event is part of the University of Birmingham’s Black History Month activities.
