A Hidden Revolution: Racial Slavery in Restoration London

Speaker: Simon Newman, University of Wisconsin

Commentator: Fara Dabhoiwala, Princeton University


The Shelby Cullom Davis Center Seminars present weekly programming on a variety of topics related to the Center's current theme. Visiting Fellows from academic institutions near and far help to create a rich understanding of the topic from diverse yet overlapping perspectives. The theme for the academic years 2020-21 and 2021-22 is “Revolutionary Change.”

The seminar starts with a brief comment by an invited commentator, and a response from the author, after which the floor is open for questions from attendees. The papers are pre-circulated and can be accessed one week prior to the date of the seminar. The papers provide the password for the Zoom session. You may access the papers on SharePoint (login required).
