Canning House's Forgotten Histories is a public history project, welcoming submissions from anyone with a fascinating story of relationships between Latin America, the UK, and the wider world which has spent too long waiting to be heard.
The project was launched on 4 February 2020, at an event which brought together historians with expertise focusing on the legacies of tangible heritage left behind by trade and enterprise:
Dr Charles Jones on the River Plate entrepreneurs
Dr Rory Miller on the West Coast enterprise
Dr Carrie Gibson on the Caribbean
& Dr Graciela Iglesias-Rogers on the Hispanic Anglosphere project and the National Trust
However, we are not only seeking contributions from academics - we are accepting submissions from anyone with a fascinating history to recall, long or short, from the Rio Grande to Tierra del Fuego.
These Forgotten Histories will be published on our website such that they will never, truly, be forgotten.
