WILBERFORCE INSTITUTE, Oriel Chambers, 27 High Street, Hull, HU1 1NE

26 Apr 2018

15+

Lecture By Professor Diana Paton, University of Edinburgh.

Professor Paton is currently working on two projects. The first deals with the politics of maternity and reproduction in Atlantic Slave Societies.

The second is a biography of Pierre, an African-born healer who experienced forced migration both as an enslaved person, where he travelled as a captive from Africa to Grenada, and also as a convict.

He was subject to penal transportation from Grenada to London and then on to Tasmania, where he died.
