Looking at Slave Trade through the Prism of Community


The term “slavery” brings to mind transatlantic ships and human trade—both very disturbing visualizations of human experience. Historically, such slave trade has been at the center of the practice of slavery, which is still prevalent in the modern world.

In the first episode of our new themed series called In Chains, we speak with Dr. Raphaël Lambert, Professor at the Department of British and American Cultural Studies, Kansai University, Kyoto. Prof. Lambert is the author of the Brill book “Narrating the Slave Trade: Theorizing Community.”

Prof. Lambert offers a glimpse into slave trade through the prism of community, telling us how community is relevant to slave trade as they’re both closely related to human experience.
