The Department of History is glad to welcome Marc Kleijwegt, Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. On Thursday, January 18, at 5pm, Professor Kleijwegt will give a talk on “Documenting Slavery in Comparative Perspective: Evidence from the Ancient and the Transatlantic World.” Sponsored by the Department of History and featured as a part of the Critical Engagements series of the College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences, this is the sort of talk that features documents in context, including the ones provided in advance by Professor Kleijwegt.
