Center for the Study of Global Slavery
The Center for the Study of Global Slavery (CSGS) researches and interprets slavery and its afterlives, revealing its deep global connections and impact as well as recognizing the resistance and resilience of people of African descent across the diaspora.
Built upon international collaboration, the CSGS provides an understanding of slavery as a shared human history beyond region, nation, and race – as something crucial to understanding our local communities, national identities, and global societies in the 21st century.
