Leading Atlantic scholar Professor Vincent Carretta, who has just been awarded the University of Maryland’s Faculty Research and Scholarship Prize for his book, Equiano, the African: Biography of a Self-Made Man, will visit The University of Sydney in May.
In honour of his stay, the ‘Nation, Globe, Empire’ research cluster is delighted to host ‘The Black Atlantic: Problems and Possibilities.’
The conference will offer scholars the opportunity to discuss the impact, limitations, and possibilities of Professor Carretta’s work, as well as issues of Atlantic history at large.
Professor Carretta will deliver the keynote address. Other speakers include Professor Cassandra Pybus, Associate Professor Alison Bashford and Professor Richard Waterhouse.
