Advisory Panels

The Legacies of British Slave-ownership project had an Advisory Panel, as has the Structure and significance of British Caribbean slave-ownership 1763-1833. Members have been drawn from the Caribbean, Britain, North America and Australia. Each person has specific expertise and specific networks. The members sponsor the project in their individual spheres of influence, provide guidance and advice to the core team on sources, and consult on issues of policy and dissemination.
