Legacies of British Slave-Ownership

Director: Catherine Hall

The Centre for the Study of the Legacies of British Slave-ownership has been established at UCL under the direction of Catherine Hall. The Centre will build on two earlier projects based at UCL tracing the impact of slave-ownership on the formation of modern Britain: the ESRC-funded Legacies of British Slave-ownership project (2009–2012), and the ESRC and AHRC-funded Structure and significance of British Caribbean slaveownership 1763–1833 (2013–2015).
