‘Slavery Between Empires’ today

Mark Hauser, faculty in Africana studies at the University of Notre Dame, will present “Slavery Between Empires: Formal and Informal Slave Economies in the 18th Century Caribbean” at 4:30 p.m. today in the Shriver Center Heritage Room.

His talk is part of a UniDiversity program sponsored by Miami’s Center for American and World Cultures (CAWC).

Hauser, an archaeologist and historical anthropologist, researches the African Diaspora in the Atlantic world, focusing on the ways in which enslaved laborers in the Caribbean created and transformed the world around them.

In his talk, Hauser will speak about how the abolition of the British slave trade in 1807 wrought significant changes in the social, political and economic realities of colonial Jamaica, and considers the ways in which internal and informal trade circumvented colonial frontiers.

The talk, free and open to the public, is sponsored by the CAWC, with support from the black world studies program and the department of anthropology. For more information, contact the center at 9-8309.
