Workshop: The Unfree Trade of an Abolitionist Colony

6056 HSSB 6056 HSSB. UC Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, CA

Manuel Covo will discuss a chapter from his current book manuscript. The chapter, entitled “The Unfree Trade of an Abolitionist Colony,” explores the economic challenges facing Saint-Domingue in the aftermath of abolition and argues that the war context and the food dependency had long-lasting consequences for the new Haitian society. The text will be pre-circulated; for a copy, email rmaclean@ucsb.edu. Sponsored by the IHC’s Slavery, Captivity, and the Meaning of Freedom Research Focus Group
