Event: Black ephemera – depictions of people of African descent

On 4 July 2012 an all-day symposium run by the Centre for Ephemera Studies at the University of Reading will consider visual representations of people of African heritage. As the flyer states, ‘the study day focuses on the ways in which black people from the African and Caribbean diaspora have been represented in ephemera over the last two hundred years.’ The event will explore different types of ephemera such as sheet music, greetings cards, advertising and postcards and there will be talks from  ‘historians of black culture, ephemerists, and those concerned with racial equality and community relations.’ For more information including contact details and registration costs, see the pdf flyer here: Black ephemera study day
