When Is Marriage Slavery? Exploring Comparisons and Connections
This project will explore the different ways in which enslavement and marriage have been brought together. The most important concept here is difference. The main goal is not to resolve the relationship between enslavement and marriage once and for all, but to instead interrogate how and why each of these foundational institutions have been connected, compared and classified in relation to the other. Two themes in particular are worth highlighting: 1) comparative analogies and 2) institutional and personal linkages. It will unite researchers working on geographic contexts including South Africa, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, North America, Russia, France and the UK, and ranging from the nineteenth century to the twenty-first centuries.
