Hannah Barker's picture

Dear colleagues,

I would like to announce a new online pedagogical resource, Teaching Medieval Slavery and Captivity ( This website offers a collection of primary sources in English translation as well as images and selected bibliographies of scholarly work to help those who want to incorporate the history of slavery and captivity into their classes. The scope of the collection is global and covers the 4th through 17th centuries.

Best wishes,


Dr. Hannah Barker

School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies

Thank you very much, for everyone who is interested I would like to point out that there is a section on the above mentioned website about slavery in Russia and Central Asia, with some selected bibliography of primary sources and scholarly literature.
