Counter-hegemonic narratives in European metropolis: heritage, identities, space

Project Start Year
2021
Project Area of Research
Project Description

This project will investigate counter narratives of colonialism in heritages tours in four major cities across Western Europe: Bordeaux, Barcelona, Edinburgh and Lisbon. Focusing on walking tours of geographic spaces associated with slavery, we examine how black and multi-racial populations challenge the dominant representation of Europe as having no legacies of slavery or racism.
