 The lecture will be drawn from Hazel Carby’s forthcoming book, Imperial Intimacies (Verso 2019), and will address issues of black belonging in the racist formation of the UK post-WWII.

On Carby's Race Men:
“Carby’s voice is clear, well documented, courageous and loud… Carby consistently challenges her reader to look at race and masculinity in ways that are new, difficult, and often dangerous to our notions of self and of others….” 
— Jill Nelson, Women’s Review of Books
