The second event in the Leeds Cultural Conversations series 2019/20.

Presented by Dr Helen Dampier (Leeds Beckett University) and Dr Rebecca Gill (University of Huddersfield)

They consider their attempts to grapple with Hobhouse's place in the racial politics of South Africa at a highly charged moment in the politics of commemoration.
