Slavery and Anti-Slavery
Fall 2023
Taught By: Julia Ott
Section: A

CRN: 15741

Credits: 3

Historians' recent investigations of the centrality of racialized chattel slavery to the origins of capitalism -- along with activists' efforts to expose the ongoing legacy of New World slavery -- inspire a broad reconsideration of the connections between capitalism, race, and coerced labor. This course will examine how historical and present-day forms of slavery and racism have shaped – and continue to shape -- capitalism. We will also investigate myriad forms of resistance, emancipation, and reparation-seeking by peoples of the African diaspora and their descendants.
