CFP: Slavery, Migration, and Contemporary Bondage in Africa

Monday, January 19th, 2009

This is a revised call for papers and participation for an interdisciplinary conference on ‘Slavery, migration, and Contemporary Bondage in Africa’, to take place at the Wilberforce Institute for the study of Slavery and Emancipation, Hull, United Kingdom. This conference will explore linkages between the history of slavery and migration in Africa and contemporary forms of bondage, such as child labour, ‘classical’ slavery, child soldiers, descent based discrimination, and human trafficking and the exploitation of migrants. Eight travel bursaries are available for early career scholars based in and/or from Africa.
