How to Place Slavery into British Identity – Dr William Pettigrew


GreshamCollege

Published on Jun 11, 2014

Britain was one of the most prolific nation of slavers, and yet we tend to elide this from our histories. Dr Pettigrew considers British slavery within our history and as a part of the global history of slavery:

http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and…

This lecture will revisit the determinants of British identity by examining the problem of slavery in British history from Roman times to the present day. Freedom and slavery provide the compass points for much of the British story but the causes, experiences, and legacies of slavery have not been fully integrated into British consciousness. An analysis of the economic, political, intellectual, and constitutional meanings of slavery in British history can suggest means to integrate slavery constructively into the story of Britain.

The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College Website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and…
