Trade of enslaved people and slavery has existed worldwide since the earliest Antiquity. These phenomena have adversely impacted Europe, the Mediterranean basin, and Africa for millennia. But at some point in modern times, we went from slaves of a multiplicity of origins on European soil to an almost African uniqueness of slavery in the Americas. MANIFEST aims to contribute to and enhance the re-imagination of Europe’s collective memory of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people.
Throughout the project, research and stakeholder engagement with relevant communities will support the Artistic Journey with a solid and documented research contribution about the material and immaterial heritage and social traces of this trade, out of which an Interactive Resources Publication will result.
This page features well-documented Resources Publication outputs casting the light on how the transatlantic trade of enslaved people is a constituent element of European history. Subscribe to our newsletter and social media to be the first one to receive our materials.
