Date / time
07/07/2021 - 09/07/2021, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

To be held online on the Zoom platform, hosted by Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. This interdisciplinary conference will facilitate a multidisciplinary exploration of slavery in all its dimensions.

In keeping with previous meetings, the format of the Slavery Past, Present and Future Conference this year will be plenary. We intend to hold the meetings for part of the day only [EST] to avoid Zoom fatigue and expect those who register to attend all the sessions in order to facilitate a genuine cross-fertilization of ideas across identities, disciplines, and subject areas.

Submissions are sought from people from all walks of life and identities, including:

  • Academics: from all disciplines, such as art, film, anthropology, sociology, history, ethnic studies, politics, social work, economics, and any field that touches the study of exploitation
  • Civil society members: human rights activists, leaders in non-governmental organizations, and others in the NGO or social advocacy fields
  • Professionals: social workers, corporate social responsibility and business ethics professionals, business leaders, and health care professionals
  • Government actors: representatives, policymakers, lobbyists, and analysts
  • Global citizens with personal connections to slavery or exploitation: former enslaved persons or indentured laborers, members of at-risk populations, migrant or guest workers, non-regularized immigrants, and refugees

We particularly encourage submissions from the Global South.

The call closes on March 15 2021. For full details please go to:
