Course Information

What are the overall aims of the course?
In this session we will consider the lives of slaves and slave resistance in the British colonies of Jamaica, the Bahamas, and Barbados. We will consider issues such as work, diet, daily routines, and relations between slaves and slave-owners and overseers. We will also consider everyday acts of resistance in slave communities, acts of resistance on slave ships, uprisings in the British colonies in the period 1791 – 1833, and the impact of the slave revolt in the French colony of St. Domingue, which became the independent state of Haiti in 1804.           

This session may be attended individually, or as a series of five on Britain and the Caribbean. It will include pictures, group discussions, and a chance to ask any questions you may have about slave resistance in the Caribbean.
