Type: 
Call for Papers
Location: 
District Of Columbia, United States

This panel seeks papers that explore the material history of objects as they are circulated between Europe and the Atlantic World (broadly conceived) during the long eighteenth century. Tied to the legacies of imperialism, slavery, and creolization, discussing material objects allows for an avenue of scholarly intervention onto the global markets that existed at the time and naturalized value systems that reverberate to this day.

Paper topics can include, but are not limited to:

This symposium, co-organized by Sophie White and Trevor Burnard, seeks to propel our thinking about how we understand the quotidian existence of enslaved people in the two biggest slave systems in the Greater Caribbean during the height of plantation slavery. Specifically, this conference focuses on alternative types of slave narratives and interrogates how such narratives were produced, the slave societies in which slave narratives existed and the meanings that we can attach to such narratives.
