Stuart Hall (1932–2014), a foundational figure in the British New Left, was a Jamaican-born British intellectual and political activist. He is famous for his tenure as Director of the University of Birmingham’s Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies, where he pioneered new approaches to studying the interweaving threads of culture, politics, race, and ethnicity.
Hall’s archive has recently arrived at the University of Birmingham’s Cadbury Research Library. This one-day symposium on 2 July 2019 will mark this arrival, bringing Hall scholars together for a conversation on the significance of the archive for future study of Hall’s work, and the possibilities of using Hall’s archive to tackle our current political crises.
