From captivity to freedom: themes in ancient and modern slavery - A collection of thematically arranged papers on ancient and modern slavery. The project is linked to the current rise in scholarly attention for world history of slavery. The papers explore economic, social and cultural aspects of slave systems in Classical Antiquity and in the Early Modern and Modern Atlantic, with a particular focus on the Greco-Roman world, the Caribbean, Brazil and the United States of America. Themes such as slave resistance, the relationship between slavery and sex, captivity and enslavement, manumission and the role of freedom in society are treated within a comparative framework, which allows the reader to understand the logic of similarities and differences between ancient and modern practices of slavery.
