'Race', ethnicity and sport

Description

Sport can be an extremely useful lens though which to examine the complexities of human ideas about ethnic and racial 'difference'. Not only have sporting events (and the Olympics especially so) become sites through which racial prejudice has been challenged, but they have also been spaces in which people from minority 'racial' groups (e.g. in the USA and Great Britain) have achieved enormous success

Windrush settlers

Description

At the end of the Second World War, Britain was busy rebuilding. The government was thinking about recruiting workers from the Caribbean to cope with the shortage of labour in some British industries. In 1948, an advertisement appeared in a Jamaican newspaper. It stated that there were 300 places on board Windrush for anyone wishing to travel to Britain. The arrival of the Windrush was the start of a period of migration from the Caribbean to Britain that did not slow down until 1962. By 1955, 18,000 Jamaicans had moved to Britain. This outward flow of people to settle in Britain was an important event in the history of the West Indies. It also changed the social landscape of Britain

Rice as a crop - a 100 year perspective from 1950 to 2050

Description

Part of the Future of Crops lecture series delivered at the Oxford Botanic Gardens. Many of the World's poorest people depend upon rice for almost their entire calorific intake. Increases in rice yields are trailing behind increases in population growth and at this rate, by 2050, there will not be enough rice to go around. In this lecture, Jane will discuss the current situation, the predicted situation and the approaches being taken to prevent disaster. Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

21H.575J Women in South Asia from 1800 to Present (MIT) 21H.575J Women in South Asia from 1800 to Present (MIT)

Description

This course is designed to introduce and help students understand the changes and continuities in the lives of women in South Asia from a historical perspective. Using gender as a lens of examining the past, we will examine how politics of race, class, caste and religion affected and continue to impact women in South Asian countries, primarily in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. We will reflect upon current debates within South Asian women's history in order to examine some of the issues and problems that arise in re-writing the past from a gendered perspective and these are found in primary documents, secondary readings, films, newspaper articles, and the Internet.
