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

This is a live in-person event only.

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 S I Martin, Catherine Hall and Miles Ogborn, will offer practical insights on how to get started in early modern Jamaican history, and how to get the most out of the British Library's collection.

Please arrive no later than 15 minutes before the start time of this event. We are committed to the safety of our event bookers. Find out how we are welcoming you to the Library safely
