Event description

Description

October 10-12, 2019

Please join us for the 2019 Lapidus Center Conference entitled "Enduring Slavery: Resistance, Public Memory, and Transatlantic Archives," which will bring together scholars, visual artists, and writers to discuss the history of transatlantic slavery and its afterlives. The conference will begin at 6 pm on Thursday, October 10th, with the awarding of the 2019 Harriet Tubman Book Prize as well as an opening plenary session on 1619 in U.S. Memory. A reception will follow.

Two full days of sessions on topics such as gender, resistance, speculation and the archives of slavery, digital humanities, the Civil War, abolition, slavery memorialization, and much more will follow. We're very excited that this year's conference will feature presentations by many eminent and talented scholars, including Ed Baptist (The Half Has Never Been Told), Herman Bennett (African Kings and Black Slaves), Marisa Fuentes (Dispossessed Lives), Stephanie Jones-Rogers (They Were Her Property), the poet Marilyn Nelson (The Homeplace, The Fields of Praise), and the architect Julian Bonder (co-designed the Memorial to the Abolition of Slavery in Nantes, France).

The full conference program is forthcoming at www.lapiduscenter.com. We will also post a link here when it is ready.

Please be sure to register for a ticket for EACH day that you plan to attend the conference.

We are looking forward to seeing you in October!
