The Law in Slavery and Freedom

The Law in Slavery in Freedom

The Law in Slavery and Freedom Project is a curricular and research initiative that has been developed at the University of Michigan in collaboration with The Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, France; the Universities of Cologne and of Bonn in Germany; the University of Campinas, Brazil; the University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada; and the Centro Juan Marinello in Havana, Cuba. Students from these institutions have participated in seminars taught by faculty from all sites and continue to exchange ideas through online discussions of readings on the topic of law and slavery in the Atlantic world. The faculty and graduate student collaborators are doing research on slavery, law and emancipation in regions from the U.S. South to the Caribbean, France, Peru, West Africa and Brazil.
