Slavery is common across cultures, time periods, and geographical regions. How do different systems of slavery inform each other, as well as contribute to modern understanding of slave systems more broadly?

The graduate students in the Department of Classics at Brock University, in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, are organizing a conference that seeks to explore slavery throughout history. We are interested in the institution of slavery in various societies, ancient and modern, in using a variety of disciplinary approaches (archaeological, historical, sociological) and in exploring slaves in different media, such as art and literature. We welcome papers covering a broad range of topics, although we are particularly interested in papers that use a comparative approach, particularly for the ancient context.

 

 

Some topics worth considering are, but not limited to, the following:

Gender and Slavery
The material culture of Slavery
The Terminology of Slavery
Slavery and the Economy
Slavery as the result of military conflict
Chattel slavery and, or versus, serfdom
What does it mean to be a slave society?
Slave revolts
Processes of control
Manumission
Slaves and the family; education and the role within the household
(Ancient) slavery, modern reception slavery on film (Spartacus, Gladiator, etc.)
Slavery and concepts of freedom

Papers should be 15-20 minutes in length.
