Slavery in the Age of Revolution examines the Transatlantic Slave Trade at the turbulent end of the 18th century through the lens of Balliol College’s collections.

Taking the long view from 15th-century encounters between established African societies and emerging European nation states to the legacies of Transatlantic slavery in our present, it foregrounds narratives of resistance to slavery and the voices of enslaved people, as well as exploring how slavery was viewed by those consuming its products in Europe.
