The New Bedford Whaling Museum Announces Groundbreaking Exhibition:
The 72nd annual meeting of the New York State Association of European Historians (NYSAEH) will be held in Niagara Falls, NY on October 7-8, 2022, hosted by Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center and Niagara University, with funding from a generous AHA-NEH SHARP grant. The theme of this year's conference is "Slavery, Race, and Empire in Europe and the World." Participants are encouraged to explore the connections between the history of Europe, the world, and Western New York in new, engaging, and public-facing ways.
Starting in Britain, the question of the abolition of slavery became one of the most debated moral issues in Europe in the long 19th century. The category "doing justice" can be used to analyse concepts of law and justice for the institution of slavery and its abolition in relation to the transnational anti-slavery movement.
You are cordially invited to the next NLM History Talk, “The Measure of Black (Un)Fitness: Legacies of Slavery in the Early Eugenics Movement,” to be held virtually this Thursday, April 28, at 2pm ET, https://videocast.nih.gov/watch=44365
