Dr Tony Talburt
Senior Lecturer in Black Studies, Course Leader – BA (Hons) Black Studies and BA (Hons) Black Studies with Criminal Justice
Having lived and taught in Jamaica, Ghana and also the UK, teaching African Caribbean history and politics, Tony has developed particular interests in the history of Africa and its peoples on the continent or in the Black Diaspora.
He enjoys bringing aspects of these experiences from different parts of the world into the classroom discussion environment. As an undergraduate history student at the University of the West Indies, he became very interested in the ways through which Europe came to dominate the Americas and Africa. This helped to form the basis of his subsequent PhD thesis on the political history of international trade between Europe, Africa and the Caribbean.
