This edited volume examines the recent transnational emergence of
the public memory of slavery, shedding light on the work of memory
produced by groups of individuals who are descendants of slaves.
The chapters in this book explore how the memory of the enslaved
and slavers is shaped and displayed in the public space not only in
the former slave societies but also in the regions that provided
captives to the former American colonies and European metropoles.
Through the analysis of exhibitions, museums, monuments, accounts,
and public performances, the volume makes sense of the political
stakes involved in the phenomenon of memorialization of slavery and
the slave trade in the public sphere.
