University of Newcastle, England.

This interdisciplinary conference will engage with ongoing attempts to revision, represent, and rewrite the entangled histories of enslavement, empire, and diaspora.
Plenary speakers for the conference are: Lubaina Himid, Alan Rice and Fred D'Aguiar. There will also be parallel sessions that will explore the theme in relation to Art, History, Literature and Museums.
The conference coincides and engages with 'Naming the Money', an exhibition of new work by internationally acclaimed artist Lubaina Himid currently showing at the Hatton Gallery, University of Newcastle.
In addition, on Tuesday 2 March, at 7pm there will be a poetry Reading featuring Fred D'Aguiar, Jackie Kay and Jack Mapanje.
