About

How much can you tell about a person by looking at their bookshelves? What will the books you leave behind say about your life and work?

The second event in our series exploring the University of Sussex’s Rosey Pool archive offers the opportunity to better understand Rosey Pool’s interests, obsessions, and the field of African-American studies which she pioneered. “Treasures from Rosey Pool’s Library” introduces non-specialists to key works held by the University of Sussex’s Rosey Pool Library. A series of short, spotlight, show-and-tell talks, each based on particularly important objects in the archive, will be conducted by leading academics on topics including slave narrative, the Harlem Renaissance, the Black Arts movement, and on  the collector herself.

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