Fighting Words: Fifteen Books that Shaped the Postcolonial World, edited by Dominic Davies, Erica Lombard and Benjamin Mountford, was launched today at The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) in the Radcliffe Humanities Building at the University of Oxford.

The launch included an introduction by the volume editors and a fascinating discussion with an expert panel: Wale Adebanwi (Rhodes Professor of Race Relations; African Studies, Oxford);  Elleke Boehmer (Professor of World Literature in English, Oxford) and Asha Rogers (Lecturer in Contemporary Postcolonial Literature, University of Birmingham). Tessa Roynon (University of Oxford) chaired the event.

The event also marked the formal launch of the book series Race and Resistance Across Borders in the Long Twentieth Century.

Thank you to the Race and Resistance Research Programme and TORCH for hosting the event! Congratulations on a successful launch.
