Henrice has been actively involved with the Society for Caribbean Studies (SCS) for many years and is currently an executive member of the Social History Society and deputy editor of Women’s History Review.
Henrice’s main research focuses on social inequalities in the British Caribbean. She has worked extensively on gender during slavery and in the post-emancipation period. Her more recent research focusses on race in the era of decolonisation.
The Wilberforce Institute aims to advance fundamental knowledge of slavery and emancipation, informing policy, business practice and public debate at local, national and international levels. The Wilberforce Institute brings together experts in humanities, law and social sciences to help tackle this global problem head on. Through our research and practice, we give leaders and communities the tools they need to help shape a better future.
