  • Live session, 12:00–12:40: Decolonising the Archives

In response to LSHTM’s decolonisation project and the Black Lives Matter movement, the archives have begun to re-examine the collections we hold, the stories we tell and the role we can play in critically engaging with the School’s colonial legacy. In this session, the LSHTM Archivist & Records Manager will give a brief outline of our Decolonising the Archives principles and action plan, and Dr Lioba Hirsch, Research Fellow on the Decolonising LSHTM: History and Legacy project will provide an overview of the project which aims to understand the consequences of LSHTM’s engagement with the British Empire for research, teaching and the institutional development of the School. There will be a short Q & A session.
