Researching historical and contemporary forms of slavery and anti-slavery
The Centre for the Study of International Slavery
The Centre for the Study of International Slavery (CSIS) supports and shares leading research about human enslavement and its legacies.
Founded as a partnership between the University of Liverpool and the International Slavery Museum (National Museums Liverpool), the Centre works together with other universities and organisations to develop scholarly and public activities related to slavery in its historical and contemporary manifestations.
In this talk Dr Balch will introduce some of the recent work undertaken by the Centre, mapping the breadth and depth of the interdisciplinary study of enslavement and efforts to address it, and discuss some of the challenges faced by those engaging in research in this area.
