A day of practical talks and workshops from leading historians of 18th-century Jamaica.

18th-century Jamaica has been the subject of intense historical interest in recent years, as important or overlooked documents have been rediscovered, and new ways of approaching histories of slavery, resistance and freedom have been developed.

This day of talks and workshops from leading writers on the period, including Catherine Hall and Miles Ogborn, will offer practical insights on how to get started in Jamaican history, and how to the most out of the British Library's collection.

Sponsored by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library
