Slaveries since Emancipation

Putting past and present in lasting dialogue, this series examines historical slavery's legacies, memory, and relationships to post-emancipation and contemporary forms of enslavement. Its books also investigate the persistence, varieties, and relevance of resistance to bondage, and place antislavery activism in historical context. The series takes a broad definition of 'emancipation' and welcomes books about resistance, rebellion, abolitionism, concepts of freedom, and processes of liberation before legal emancipation, as well as books about slavery's post-emancipation afterlife. The editors welcome multidisciplinary approaches that exhibit a deep engagement with history, and international approaches that are rooted in the Americas and the Atlantic World. The series is the official book series of Historians against Slavery and the series partner for the Gilder Lehrman Center (Yale University, Connecticut) and the Rights Lab (University of Nottingham).

General Editors: Randall Miller, St Joseph's University, Pennsylvania; Zoe Trodd, University of Nottingham
