HIST7350: Remembering Slavery

Dr Nicholas Draper

This module examines how Britain’s involvement in colonial slavery has been conceptualised and remembered in both academic and public contexts. It will explore the ways in which contemporaries construed Britain’s involvement, trace the subsequent major historiographical debates as to how and why British colonial slavery was brought to an end, analyse how pervasive or otherwise were the effects of the slave-economy for metropolitan Britain, focusing on London and on the other major port-cities, and reflect on how the bicentennial of the abolition of slavery was commemorated in 2007.
