Museums and galleries across the UK are subject to temporary closures. Those that remain open have safety measures in place, please remember to check venue guidelines before visiting.

As part of our 2021 Decolonisation + Democratisation series, Empireland author, Sathnam Sanghera is joining us for a special Q&A.

Decolonisation + Democratisation is a free online webinar series exploring how histories are made and shared.

Sathnam Sanghera is a British journalist and author of Empireland: How Modern Britain is Shaped by its Imperial Past. In this hour-long livestream with Museum Manager, Frank Hargrave, Sathnam will share his thoughts on the themes of the book, including how the full story of empire has been downplayed by museums in the past.

Empireland is the product of Sanghera’s mission to decolonise himself... It’s a sensitive, often uncomfortable commentary on the stubborn influence of empire.”
Gerard DeGroot, The Times.

If you have a question for Sathnam, email it to and we will do our best to pose as many as we can.
