2018-2020 Aftermaths of Slavery
What have been the long-term impacts of slavery after formal abolition? In a range of historical contexts we seek to explore the memory of slavery in the longue durée. The network will be comparative, incorporating Atlantic, Indian and Mediterranean worlds (among others), in ancient and modern periods. There will be some emphasis on Cape slavery in South Africa (1653-1834) as a relatively neglected element within comparative slave studies.
