Le 28 août 2015 à 17h31

Call for Papers
Free and Unfree Workers
In Atlantic and Indian Ocean Port Cities (c. 1700-1850)

Workshop on May 6-7, 2016 at the University of Pittsburgh



Annonce valable jusqu’au 1er septembre 2015

"We invite historians working on free and unfree workers in port cities to send in proposals for a workshop on May 6-7, 2016 at the University of Pittsburgh.

Historians have long treated slave labor and free labor as mutually exclusive ideal types. Recent work has begun to challenge this view, yet research on the connections between free and unfree workers remains limited. Port cities are the perfect setting in which to explore a new, broader, more inclusive labor history for the period 1700-1850.
