Annual program conference “Gold, Sugar, Tobacco, Rice: The Stuff of the Early Modern Atlantic World”
Gold, Sugar, Tobacco, Rice: The Stuff of the Early Modern Atlantic” aims to explore the forces driving new forms of corporatization and labor extraction, including, but not limited to, racialized life-long slavery. We also hope to foreground the interactions of various colonial powers and indigenous populations, not only in terms of transfers of territory, but also exchanges of knowledge and taste, as well as impacts on social organization. The conference will be sponsored primarily by the Graduate Center’s interdisciplinary program in Global Early Modern Studies, as part of our focus on “Economies of Race and Labor in the Atlantic World” over the past two years.
Registration details TBA.
