Brown Bag, Research Fellow New England and Haiti 16 August 2019.Friday, 12:00PM - 1:00PM Asaf Almog, University of Virginia

This talk looks at New England’s political elite and its conception of race, as shown through its view of the Haitian Revolution, and later the Republic of Haiti. The talk will discuss and complicate a common binary between abolitionism on the one side and hardening racist consensus on the other usually found in the literature.
