Centring Blackness in European History: a European History Quarterly forum

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

7 Downloads (Pure)


Black History is European History. By placing Blackness at the centre of the historical narrative, historians are transforming the way in which we think of the history of Europe and successfully overcoming intellectual frameworks which have consistently failed to produce accurate, diverse and compelling analyses of European societies. This collection of essays engages with the methodological and intellectual challenges that we, as historians, face when doing so. We conclude that no matter the difficulties, these new approaches have proven genuinely liberating, and it has allowed historians to escape traditional narratives that consistently ignore the intellectual, political, social and cultural contribution of Black people to European History.
