This event is part of the British Academy's season on Revolutions

The Haitian Revolution (1791-1804) heralded the beginning of the end of slavery in the Western Hemisphere, and the overthrow of colonial powers. Successive revolutions have shaped the region's political, economic and cultural landscapes today, as slavery has been challenged, and freedom sought. Join our panel for a fascinating insight into the legacies of rebellion, and challenges faced today across the Caribbean.

Speakers to include:
Dr David Howard Associate Professor in Sustainable Urban Development; Fellow of Kellogg College, University of Oxford


Free, booking required

As our public events are free, not everyone who registers for tickets attends. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.

If you have any questions about this event, please refer to our Public Events FAQ. If your question is not answered, please email events@britac.ac.uk.
