Rebecca Nelson will discuss some of her PhD research at Hull Heritage Open Weekend on 10 September. She will present on ‘Museums and the Fight Against Modern Slavery’, and will explore the process of development of museums addressing antislavery in their exhibits, and the new movement for museums to become involved in contemporary antislavery campaigns.
Registration is now open for the world’s first MOOC about contemporary slavery, exploring how to end the enslavement of 46 million people. Part of the ‘Antislavery Usable Past’ research project, this free, four-week ‘massive open online course’ is taught by human rights experts and historians through Future Learn. It starts October 17 – see the Future Learn website for more information and to sign up!
