Race and Slavery in the Atlantic World is a working group designed to give faculty and graduate students a forum to present work-in-progress related to Atlantic World slavery.
The working group is open to those interested in slavery and related subjects in North America, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe and Africa before 1900. We aim to give participants an opportunity to present book or dissertation chapters, articles-in-progress, or prospectus drafts. Topics include but are not limited to the relationship between slavery and: the state, society, politics, empire, political economy, agriculture, gender, resistance and revolt, abolition, emancipation, and cultural and racial formations.
We meet on Wednesdays at 6pm. Format is a moderated discussion with pre-circulated papers.
