Slavery is common across cultures, time periods, and geographical regions. How do different systems of slavery inform each other, as well as contribute to modern understanding of slave systems more broadly?
The graduate students in the Department of Classics at Brock University, in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, are organizing a conference that seeks to explore slavery throughout history. We are interested in the institution of slavery in various societies, ancient and modern, in using a variety of disciplinary approaches (archaeological, historical, sociological) and in exploring slaves in different media, such as art and literature. We welcome papers covering a broad range of topics, although we are particularly interested in papers that use a comparative approach, particularly for the ancient context.
Papers should be 15-20 minutes in length.
Please submit abstracts of 250 words to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by December 10
For inquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
