Global Conference ‘Legacy of Slavery and Indentured Labour’ 3

Various departments of the Anton de Kom University of Suriname and the Directorate of Culture (Ministry of Education, Science and Culture), organisers of the third conference on the Legacy of Slavery and Indentured Labour welcome proposals for this Global Conference on Slavery, Indentured Labour and their impact on present societies. The aim of the conference is to connect historical specificities of slavery, indentured labour and migration to contemporary issues of globalization, Diaspora, identity formation, interculturalism, nationalism and transnationalism. At the same time the organisers want to promote new perspectives and approaches in the study of forced and free migration and their impact on the society. By bringing scholars together from various parts of the world – senior scholars as well as new promising talents – they hope to stimulate exchange of ideas, set up new networks and strengthen existing ones.

A registration fee applies for participants.
