Description

The outputs of the Legacies of British Slave Ownership (LBS) centre at UCL have reconfigured the history of Britain by demonstrating how the nation was shaped by slave ownership in the Caribbean and its immediate aftermath. There is now considerable interest in exploring the extent to which the history of Australasia was also shaped by Britons who had owned enslaved people, exemplified by an exciting exploratory workshop hosted by Susannah Radstone and Clare Corbould at Monash in March 2017. Catherine Hall has urged Australian historians to use the LBS database of slave owners who were paid compensation after emancipation in 1834 ‘as a starting point from which to explore some of the implications of the flow of human and financial capital to Australia in the 1830s and 1840s’. This workshop will present some of the research that has been inspired by this call.

The workshop is being held in honour of Tracey Banivanua Mar, who was working, with Nikita Vanderbyl and Alan Lester, in the final months of her life on the first of the papers to be presented.
