This exciting new resource is a collaborative project between the University of Liverpool and Tate Liverpool originally constructed on the occasion of Tate Liverpool’s exhibition “Afro Modern: Journeys through the Black Atlantic“. This resource seeks to promote the study of black Atlantic cultures by providing a hub for access to current research, debates and online materials and a space for scholarly exchange.

The Black Atlantic Resource provides free access to current research, artworks, chronological and bibliographic information in this area. We are happy to publish posts about new publications in relevant fields of study, as well as book reviews, and information about other online resources.
