Defining Immigration, Empire, Race, and Slavery

February 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

How did the meanings of race, empire, and slavery vary in the United States and South Asia nations under British control? What role did slavery and law play in creating and dismantling these regimes? Professor Gunja SenGupta’s new book addresses the topic in the United States and in nations in the Indian Ocean, tracing the effects, commonalities, and differences in all regions. Professor Kevin Kenny’s recent book focuses on the effect of slavery on voluntary migration policy in the United States before the 1882 transition to exclusively federal control. Professor Anna Law will serve as moderator for this discussion.
