Dear Colleagues, if you haven't seen this new online journal, it offers an exciting point of convergence in history, literature and the arts on themes in slavery and post-slavery.

Created in 2019,  Esclavages et Post-Esclavages/Slaveries and Post-Slaveries is an international biannual journal published exclusively online. Multidisciplinary and multi-lingual, it explores the characteristics of slavery and post-slavery throughout the world, from antiquity to the present. Each issue includes scholarship, book reviews, research using sound and image, and creative compositions by contemporary artists.

Esclavages & Post-esclavages has just released its second issue: "Experimenting History with Contemporary Arts,"  edited by Anna Seiderer, Elvan Zabunyan and Elisabeth Spettel. (The previous, inaugural issue's theme was "Citizenship and Anti-Citizenship.")
