Lapidus Talks @ Noon: Atlantic Slaveries: Native American and African Slave...
Thu, April 6, 2017, 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT
Speaker: Linford Fisher, Assistant Professor of History at Brown University
Although African slavery has received the majority of scholarly attention in the early modern Atlantic, recently scholars have began recovering the history of the enslavement of Native Americans. All across the Americas, in every colonial context, Natives were captured, enslaved, and sent to other regions to work in houses, on farms, and on plantations. But the histories of Native and African slaveries were not separate. In fact, they were intertwined and intermingled. This presentation considers how Native American and African slaveries intersected in the English Atlantic world in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, using New England, Barbados, Jamaica, and Bermuda as the primary comparative lens of analysis.
The Lapidus Talks @ Noon series is presented by the Lapidus Center for the Historical Analysis of Transatlantic Slavery.
