Our events and projects

We host a variety of different events including lectures, seminars, fieldtrips, and symposiums that aim to discuss the stories of enslaved people, and educate others about historical and contemporary slavery. Our events are open to all.


We also work on multiple collaborative projects throughout the year to bring together academics to develop an understanding of slavery past and present. We aim to create a base of knowledge that today’s thinkers can use to understand and tackle slavery in the present, while also focusing on reparations and decolonisation.
