By Professor Diana Paton, University of Edinburgh.
Professor Paton is currently working on two projects. The first deals with the politics of maternity and reproduction in Atlantic Slave Societies (with Emily West, Maria Helena Machado, and Camillia Cowling). The second, with Gemma Romain, is a biography of Pierre, an African-born healer who experienced forced migration both as an enslaved person—he travelled as a captive from Africa to Grenada—and as a convict. He was subject to penal transportation from Grenada to London and then on to Tasmania, where he died. All are welcome and free refreshments are served 30 minutes before the lecture.
This lecture has a recommended minimum age limit of 15+.
