The Black Atlantic: Then and Now

This 11-week course investigates Britain’s, and particularly London’s role in the Atlantic trade triangle where the chief commodities were enslaved West Africans, sugar, rum, guns and gin.

Using the collections of the National Maritime Museum as its starting point this course makes parallels with contemporary politics and cultural theory. It will be based on discussion and taught through a variety of methods including handling objects from the Museum's collection, off-site visits and guided walks. In partnership with Birkbeck College.
