International history of slavery conference set for Feb. 8 at Brock University

Published on February 04 2014


There is a brief pause as a group of graduate students in the Master of Arts in Classics program consider an underlining question to an upcoming international conference at Brock University Feb. 8 on the history of slavery.
They are asked if they can envision a world that is free of slavery.
Their answer is unanimous - unfortunately not.
“I don’t see a world without slavery in our lifetime,” says one student, as others nod in agreement. “I think we can hope to lessen the frequency and make things better by purposely looking back over history.”

The conference is open to the public. For more, read the Brock News story.
