Abstract

In 2010 Mica Nava was awarded funding by the Ruth Landes Memorial Research Fund, a programme of the Reed Foundation in the US, to examine the published and unpublished work of American anthropologist Ruth Landes about ‘color’ and ‘biracialism’ in Britain in the 1950s and to situate it in the broader field of postwar UK race relations research.
This research file includes the grant application to The Reed Foundation made in 2010, an edited version of the report originally submitted to the Reed Foundation in 2011, an introduction written in 2013, and a selection of related images. The file has been published by the University of East London’s research open access repository (ROAR) because it is not the practice of the Reed Foundation to make its funded research reports available to the public.
