N. Giannella.

This course introduces students to the different forms, embodiments, and definitions of slavery across time and the globe. We will explore canonical questions such as what constitutes a slave society and whether a universal definition is a constructive paradigm, to specific questions about how to understand the role of law, gender and sexuality, science, and race in a particular society. We will focus on, but not limit our study to, slavery in Athens, Rome, and in the New World.
