Doel vak

This is a research seminar with the objectives to (1) introduce students
to selected topics and methods of current historical and anthropological
research on the circulation of people, goods, and ideas and (2) help
them progress towards formulating their thesis questions, finding
appropriate methods and strengthening research and presentation skills.

Inhoud vak

The course will be divided into two parts. In the first part, students
will read literature that analyses slavery and other forms of unfree
labour migration during various historical periods. We will cover
precolonial slave migrations, the trans-Atlantic slave trade, coercive
labour migration in the late colonial period, and "modern slavery" and
discuss concepts that allow their comparison. In the
second part, students will be offered a choice of research assignments
leading to a paper on a specific subject, based on original archival
and/or field research combined with a review of relevant scholarship.
