Join us for a lecture by Dr Nathaniel Adam Tobias Coleman, part of our 'Monuments' research season. “The statues of Birmingham are of men who are beyond the ephemeral praise of their age . . . They point their moral and adorn the tale the civic sculpture tells in the streets to all who do not pass heedlessly by. The story of their lives is the history of Birmingham. They are monuments not only of men, but of the material and moral progress of the town . . .” Birmingham Daily Mail, 18th November 1885 ABOUT THE SPEAKER Schooled in Oxford (Double First in Greats), Paris (Entente Cordial Scholar), and Michigan (MA and PhD in philosophy), Dr Coleman taught social philosophy at University College London and Wadham College, Oxford, where he participated in the decolonial social movements (a) asking 'Why is my curriculum white?', (b) answering that 'Philosophy was whitewashed by eurocratic empire', and (c) arguing, as a consequence, that 'RHODESian social relations MUST FALL!'. Thereafter, back home in Birmingham, Dr Coleman taught sociology for Birmingham City University's Black Studies Research Cluster and researched local history for the University of Birmingham's Centre for West Midlands History. Now, as honorary research fellow in sociology at the University of Warwick, Dr Coleman is currently co-producing, with colleagues in the Global Warwickshire Collective, '#WindrushStrikesBack: Decolonising Global Warwickshire’.
