Memorial Book Launch: 'Race Rights Reparations: Institutional Racism and The Law'

Celebrating the work of Fernne Brennan

Please join us on Tuesday 7th November for a Memorial Book Launch to remember our colleague Fernne Brennan, and celebrate her most recent work with friends and colleagues at the University of Essex.

Keynote speakers and panel members will include colleagues and friends who have worked with Fernne during her career, both from the University of Essex and beyond.

Fernne Brennan was a Senior Lecturer in the School of Law. Fernne joined the School  in 2000  was an active member of the Human Rights Centre. Fernne was passionate in equal measure about her teaching (in particular on her module Race Equality Law) and her research. Her writing in recent years focused on the linkages between the transatlantic slave trade and institutional racism in the UK. In 2012, she co-edited (with John Packer) Colonialism, Slavery, Reparations and Trade: Remedying the 'Past'? (Routledge). She had recently completed work on her new book, Race Rights Reparations: Institutional Racism and The Law (Routledge). Fernne contributed to the life of the School over many years and we mourn her passing.

Post-launch reception

The memorial book launch will be followed by a drinks reception from 18:00-19:00.
