As part of H-Law's onging efforts to expand our content offerings on all topics legal historical, H-Law podcaster Siobhan Barco has posted the ninth instalment of H-Law Podcasts.  The topic for Podcast 9 is a discussion with Professor Holly Brewer about her article published in October 2017 in the American Historical Review, entitled "Slavery, Sovereignty and 'Inheritable Blood': Reconsidering John Locke and the Origins of American Slavery."  The article is part of a larger book project that will situate the origins of American slavery in the ideas and legal practices associated with the divine rights of kings, tentatively entitled "Inheritable Blood: Slavery & Sovereignty in Early America and the British Empire.”
