Stuart Hall’s archive recently arrived at the University of Birmingham’s Cadbury Research Library. At this lunch-time seminar, archivist Dr Helen Fisher and historian Dr Rob Waters introduce highlights from the archive, and how its holdings relate to the history of political activism and black intellectual work in Birmingham.

Stuart Hall (1932–2014) was a foundational figure in the British New Left. A Jamaican-born British intellectual and political activist, Hall is famous for his tenure as Director of the University of Birmingham’s Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies, where he pioneered new approaches to studying the interweaving threads of culture, politics, race, and ethnicity.
