This new collection of essays brings together localised case studies of Britain’s history and memory of its involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, and slavery. These essays, ranging in focus from eighteenth-century Liverpool to twenty-first-century rural Cambridgeshire, from racist ideologues to Methodist preachers, examine how transatlantic slavery impacted on, and continues to impact, people and places across Britain.
The new publication features the work of Kate Donington and John Oldfield. It will be published in September 2016 by Liverpool University Press. See the flyer for further information and details about the pre-publication discount.
