This event will introduce secondary, FE/HE teachers and tutors to the latest learning resources to support the teaching of diverse histories across the National Curriculum, Higher Education and informal learning.

The evening will begin with a welcome from Renée Mussai, Autograph ABP Curator and Head of Archive and the Runnymede Trust. This will introduce the development of both organisations’ new resources, showcasing Autograph ABP’s pioneering research to unearth the earliest photographs documenting the Black presence in Victorian and Edwardian Britain, and demonstrating the ways the Runnymede Trust has tied together existing but disparate learning materials on migration history with cutting-edge new research from over 60 historians based across UK universities.

This will be followed by a panel discussion on the topic ‘Teaching Migration History: Challenges and Opportunities’ featuring leading artists, policymakers and educationalists with expertise in the field, as well as a Q&A session enabling teachers and tutors to share their thoughts and insights after. We will end the evening with an informal session over a glass of wine, with time for delegates to experience the range of learning resources first hand, as well as time to network.

Attendees will also be able to request for a free copy of Autograph ABP’s Archive Learning Resource, comprised of over 40 image reproductions with accompanying teaching packs, as well as the new specially designed Exhibition in A Box, which allows teachers and tutors to recreate unique archive pop-up exhibitions displays in any setting for students to explore.

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, as part of The Missing Chapter project (2013 – 16).
