"Hidden Histories" Alternative Lecture Series
Hidden Histories is an alternative lecture series run by staff and students at Warwick which seeks to explore often-erased stories of oppression and resistance. The Students’ Union are launching this series as part of the work we are doing around liberating the curriculum. The aim of the series is to give a platform to academic narratives and discourses which are often neglected or even deliberately erased from mainstream curricula, and to open these discussions up so that students from any and all disciplines can access and engage in them. The series will seek to highlight how the erasure of these histories impacts on contemporary perceptions of the world around us, and thus why it is important to learn about them. Though this initiative is extra-curricular, we hope that through “Hidden Histories”, as a student and staff community, we can collectively explore and showcase what a truly liberated curriculum could look like.
