"Black Atlantics: An Urban Perspective, 1400-1900" Conference
Thu, April 2, 2009 • UT Campus
This conference will convene specialists on urban slavery in early modern Africa, Europe, and the Americas to study Atlantic history as a space of relentless exploitation but also incessant transnational circulations.The conference is bringing together sixteen leading scholars on the urban Black Atlantic to explore cities as laboratories of transnational ethnogenesis in order to address, but also go beyond, current debates on the "Creole" and "African Diaspora" origins of Afro-Atlantic culture.
The original contributions will be published in an edited volume.
