Set in Stone? The Politics of Curating the Life of Emily Hobhouse in Contemporary South Africa

Mon 1 January 0001 - Wed 6 November 2019
Leeds Town Hall

Helen Dampier and Rebecca Gill reflect on the challenges they have faced in curating an exhibition on Emily Hobhouse's life and legacy in contemporary South Africa. 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.

This event is part of the Leeds Cultural Conversations series organised by the Centre for Culture & the Arts at Leeds Beckett University.

Between 4 - 20 November the Emily Hobhouse's Peach Activism: War Without Glamour Exhibition is taking place at Leeds Beckett University.
