"Global Transit, Sexual Slavery, and the Making of an Eighteenth-Century Anglo-Oceanic World"

2110 Taliaferro Hall
Friday, November 4, 2016 - 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Please join the Miller Center and the Washington Early American Seminar for a conversation on "Global Transit, Sexual Slavery, and the Making of an Eighteenth-Century Anglo-Oceanic World," with Professor Clare Lyons of the University of Maryland.

Clare Lyons is Associate Professor at the University of Maryland. This project explores the existence of an Anglo-Oceanic colonial world, knit together by the movement of people and ideas through oceanic trade, travel and print culture: from the North American eastern seaboard to the British Caribbean islands, across the Atlantic to Africa’s British slaving ports, on into the Indian Ocean to India, Indonesia, and finally to China and New South Wales bordering the pacific. It is concerned in particular with how the increased geographic mobility and enhanced communication networks of the eighteenth century facilitated the development of new ideas about sexuality and the self, and influenced the deployment of power in the Anglophone colonial world.

 

This paper is a pre-circulated work-in-progress and available here.
