About this Event

5 – 6pm

Decolonisation + Democratisation is a free online webinar series exploring how histories are made and shared.

Sathnam Sanghera is a British journalist and author of Empireland: How Modern Britain is Shaped by its Imperial Past. In this hour-long livestream with Museum Manger, Frank Hargrave, Sathnam will share his thoughts on the themes of the book, including how the full story of empire has been downplayed by museums in the past.

“Empireland is the product of Sanghera’s mission to decolonise himself… It’s a sensitive, often uncomfortable commentary on the stubborn influence of empire.”
Gerard DeGroot, The Times
