UEL Library, Archives and Learning Services Celebrates Black History Month 2020
Q&A with Dr Miranda Kaufman
We are excited to invite you to join Library, Archives and Learning Services for a live question and answer session with Dr Miranda Kaufmann, Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies and acclaimed author of Black Tudors: The Untold Story. Miranda is currently researching her next book, Heiresses: The Caribbean Marriage Trade.
At the end of this year’s Black History Month the talk with live questions and answers will bring some of Black History to life for you. The importance of broadening our understanding of history and the contributions made by marginalised or forgotten voices and stories is a vital aspect of much of Miranda’s work and writing.
Miranda’s book was shortlisted for the prestigious Wolfson History Prize and the Nayef Al-Rodhan Prize. Exciting recent news is that Black Tudors is also being used as the basis and inspiration for a new TV Drama, Southwark for BritBoxTV.
As well as an author, Miranda is also a freelance historian and journalist and has worked for a range of organisations and media outlets including; The Sunday Times, the National Trust, English Heritage and the BBC. Miranda has been consulted in the making of many programmes including the BAFTA award winning BBC2 series with David Olusoga, Black and British: A Forgotten History.
We hope that you will be able to join us for this opportunity to meet the author and ask questions.
