Black Presence: Asian and Black history in Britain, 1500 - 1850

Description

This is a virtual interactive exhibition about people of African and Asian origin having lived in Britain for at least two thousand years. By presenting a selection of relevant records held by The National Archives and other sources, the Black Presence exhibition aims to reclaim some of this history and make it more widely known. The online galleries cover early times; Africa and the Caribbean; India; work and community; rights; and culture. There are two interactive learning journeys: A Virtual Tour of Black and Asian Presence in Britain; and An 18th Century Voyage of Discovery.

'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

STS.006J Bioethics (MIT) STS.006J Bioethics (MIT)

Description

Many difficult ethical questions have arisen from the explosive growth of biomedical research and the health-care industry since World War II. When and how should doctors be allowed to help patients end their lives? Should embryos be cloned for research and/or reproduction? Should parents be given control over the genetic make-up of their children? What sorts of living things is it appropriate to use as research subjects? How should we distribute scarce and expensive medical resources? While some of these questions are genuinely new, products of rapid changes in biomedical technology, others have been debated for centuries. Drawing on philosophy, history, and anthropology, this course will show students how problems in bioethics can be approached from a variety of perspectives, with the ai Many difficult ethical questions have arisen from the explosive growth of biomedical research and the health-care industry since World War II.

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/
