Circum-Atlantic Studies Seminar
In 2001, with the sponsorship of the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities, Sean Goudie, of the English Department and Jane Landers, of the Department of History organized the Circum-Atlantic Studies Seminar. In 2010 Celso Castilho joined Landers as co-director. The seminar meets to discuss works-in-progress by seminar participants and invited guests. The scholarship is interdisciplinary and centers on themes related to Atlantic slavery, colonialism, and/or postcolonialism. Broadly conceived, the works link Africa, Europe, the Americas, and the Caribbean.
