Kris Manjapra | Plantation Empire || Radcliffe Institute

As part of the 2015–2016 Fellows’ Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Kris Manjapra argues that the labor relations, land relations, financial institutions, and agricultural relations so characteristic of Caribbean slavery did not die away in the 1830s with abolition, but rather went through a transformation that allowed them to expand across the global South. 

Manjapra is the 2015–2016 Beatrice Shepherd Blane Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute.
