Circum-Atlantic Studies Seminar

The Circum-Atlantic Studies Seminar focuses on the themes of Atlantic slavery, colonialism, and/or post colonialism, with most sessions centering on an invited talk and/or a discussion of a pre-circulated paper. The research links Africa, Europe, the Americas, and the Caribbean, and addresses a range of constituencies on campus. This seminar also created, with support from the RPW Center, a Black Atlantic History Speaker Series. The Series invites major scholars of the Black Atlantic to campus every February to discuss their research and publications. Our goal for this year is to continue scholarly discussions of the field through presentations from invited speakers as well as faculty and graduate students on campus.
