Treasures from the Rosey Pool Library

November 21, 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

How much can you tell about a person by looking at their bookshelves?

The second event in the series ‘As waves of one sea’ exploring the University of Sussex’s Rosey Pool archive offers the opportunity to understand her interests, obsessions, and the field of African-American studies she pioneered. A series of short, spotlight, show-and-tell talks, each based on particularly important objects in Pool’s library, will be conducted by leading academics on topics including slave narratives, the Harlem Renaissance, the Black Arts movement, and the collector herself.

With Lonneke Geerlings, Shima Jalal Kamali, Professor Maria Lauret, and Dr Mike Rowland.


This event is part of the series As waves of one sea.
