This workshop, which forms part of the EURESCL research project (workpackage 1) will provide scholars with opportunity to examine how the history of slavery and abolition has featured in national histories, national memories, and national educational curriculums. It will draw together scholars from different disciplines and geographic specialisations, and the organizers are especially keen to hear from scholars who work within comparative frameworks.
