The Decolonising MLAC Research Group will hold two events this March to discuss the work of Dr Lisa Palmer, Deputy Director of the Stephen Lawrence Research Centre at De Montfort University.
The first event will be a Reading Group to discuss Dr. Lisa Palmer’s paper ‘The stakes are high: Is it possible to dismantle the ongoing coloniality of knowledge?’
The event will be hosted on Microsoft Teams. Please follow the link below to join (this link also has the paper available for download in the 'List of Readings Folder' for reading ahead of the session).
Dr Lisa Amanda Palmer was the former Course Director for the Black Studies undergraduate programme and Senior Lecturer in Sociology at Birmingham City University.
Lisa is a qualified librarian and previously worked for Birmingham Libraries and Archive Services for many years. She has a keen interest in working with local archive collections, specifically, the Vanley Burke Archive held at the Library of Birmingham.
Her research focuses on Black feminism, Black cultural politics and the intersection of race, racism, gender and sexuality. Her writing covers a broad spectrum of fields including the gendered politics of lovers’ rock music, the production of local community archives and the misogynoir faced by Black women in British public life. She is the co-author of the book Blackness in Britain (2016) and is currently writing her book on Black women in the UK’s lover’s rock reggae scene.
