Western Australian Legacies of British Slavery - Interpreting Slavery in the Museum


About This PhD Project

Project Description

This PhD project will contribute to a broader research project on the Western Australian Legacies of British Slavery. This aims to explore links between the abolition of slavery in the British Empire and settler colonialism by tracing the movement of capital, people and culture from slave-owning Britain to Western Australia (WA).
This project will consider how the Australian legacies of British slavery have been and might more productively be explored within cultural and public institutions, such as museums, which increasingly function as places to debate pressing social and cultural questions. S/he will work closely with relevant cultural institutions. UWA has a long-term research strength in Indian Ocean history, communication and networks.
