The University of Toronto will host a conference, "Tales of Slavery: Narratives of Slavery, the Slave Trade and Enslavement in Africa" from Tuesday 20th to Friday 23rd May, 2008 and are inviting proposals dealing with the exploration of new research methodologies and the re-examination of the old. Major objectives of the conference are to make available to students and scholars African sources of slavery, enslavement, the slave trade and to improve general understanding of these documents.
The conference will deal with all parts of Africa and is open to any methodology that taps African voices. The goal is to seek out and explore newer methodologies to find more African sources, and if possible to look for the voices for the slaves themselves and make these sources widely available.
Interested persons should submit a title and an abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org.
