Global Slavery - Representation and Redress

Conference | 11-12 June 2015 | RCMC

This workshop explores the practices of making slavery histories public. It brings together curators and scholars from across the world to think about how slavery is and has been represented in West Africa, South Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, the USA and in Europe. The aim is to raise awareness of and think through the politics, problematics and possibilities of exhibiting and representing slavery within a global perspective.


This event is organised together with Global Interactions, Leiden University, and the KITLV. This two part event takes up the topic of Global Slavery.
