A Fire Bell in the Past: The Missouri Crisis at 200
February 15-16, 2019
Dear H-Slavery members,
Those of you interested in Medieval slavery may be intrigued by two new papers concerning the Mediterranean in the 15th century.
Recently, the writing system of a Medieval manuscript was revealed to be proto-Romance: i.e., the ancestor to Portuguese and the other modern Romance languages. In addition, it is written with a proto-Italic alphabet. It is the only known document of this kind and therefore has considerable linguistic and historic importance.
Call for Papers:
Fourth Annual Conference of the Iranian Studies Initiative
Space is still available for a presentation on New Jersey colonial history by Dr. Jonathan Mercantini on Tuesday, May 8th at 7pm at Bound Brook Memorial Public Library.
I'd like to thank H-Net's Home Office for converting Dr. Youval Rotman's PDF on the Slave Trade in the Central Middle Ages into this webpage, complete with a timeline:
which you can find linked to on the righthand side of our main page:
Dr. Pedram Khosronejad, the Associate Director for Iranian and Persian Gulf Studies at Oklahoma State University, curated a photography exhibition titled "Re-Imagining Iranian African Slavery: photography as material culture" that will be on display at the University of California at Davis May 10 through June 27 at the Walter A. Buehler Alumni Center.
Some of you will take interest in the following write-up on a recent roundtable at the annual OAH meeting on emancipation, abolition, and their relationships to the U.S. Civil War and Reconstruction. Looks like it was a lively session!
