Emancipation, Slave Ownership and the Remaking of the British Imperial World

Dear Colleagues

The Legacies of British Slave-ownership project at University College London cordially invite you to the next Neale Lecture and Colloquium in British History, entitled "Emancipation, Slave Ownership and the Remaking of the British Imperial World." The colloquium will take place at UCL from March 29th - 31st 2012, and will be opened by a public lecture from Professor Robin Blackburn on "Slavery and Finance in Britain's Empire of Free Trade." This lecture will take place at 5:30pm in the Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre, Main Building, University College London, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT. Over the next two days, the colloquium will debate current work, including that of the LBS project, on the centrality of slavery and slave ownership to the remaking of the British imperial world after abolition in 1833, and consider the implications of these legacies for history writing.

Speakers and respondents include Catherine Hall, Nick Draper, Keith McClelland, Zoe Laidlaw, Richard Huzzey, Miles Taylor, Pat Hudson, Chris Evans, Julian Hoppit, Heather Cateau, Anita Rupprecht, Clare Anderson, Alison Light, Andrea Stuart, Cora Kaplan, Sir Hilary Beckles, Vijaya Teelock, Francoise Verges and Andrea Levy. A programme and registration form are available on our website. We have a reduced rate for postgraduates - please see the registration form for details. We very much hope you are able to attend. Please get in touch if you require any further information.
Yours sincerely
Prof Catherine Hall
