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 Speaker Series welcomes Dr Palmer to talk about her paper and other research interests. This will be followed by a roundtable discussion open to attendees.
The event will be hosted on Zoom. Please register by 5pm, Monday 15th.
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.
