Event description

Description

Charmaine Nelson explores the history of slavery in Canada. Although slavery looked different in Canada than in the American South, it was no less brutal for the enslaved, who suffered various forms of abuse and were isolated from their cultural, linguistic, and spiritual communities. This lecture will examine fugitive slave advertisements to explore various dimensions of the enslaved experience in Canada. Charmaine Nelson is a Professor of Art History at McGill University. She was the William Lyon Mackenzie King Visiting Professor of Canadian Studies at Harvard University (2017-18). She is the author of numerous books and articles on Canadian history.
