ANTH 4720 - Slavery and Resistance


This course explores the development of black slavery in the Americas from its African and European antecedents down through its eradication the nineteenth century. Attention will be given to the Caribbean, and to mainland North and South America, although some areas may receive more emphasis than others. We will adopt a cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspective toward slavery. Anthropological, historical, archaeological, cliometric, Marxist, and other approaches to slave studies are examined in order to assess competing materialist and idealist viewpoints. The goal is to identify common themes and characteristics of slavery in different historical and cross-cultural contexts.
