The objective of this project is to put back slaves trade and
slavery in the history of Europe; global history to be built;
national histories to be put into correlation between them
and, in the case of transatlantic slavery and slaves trade, with
their colonies or their extra-European zones of influence.
Within this context, it has the more specific target of studying the multiple genealogies of the “Black”, the “Afro-descendants” and the “Black Diaspora” issues in Europe, in order to tackle the definition of European identity.
The approach to these questions will be a multidisciplinary one, between historians, geographers, sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, jurists and educationalists.
The project has two components: research, thanks to the network that has been created among European research centres and valortisation of the research through the elaboration of educational tools for the teaching of slaves trade and slavery.
