'Slaving Zones' Call for papers

Why have certain groups of people been enslaved throughout history and not others? How have shifting ideologies and group identities impacted and/or informed the nature of slavery and post-slavery in various world societies? How have these ideologies and identities interacted with institutions and political realities in order to produce the map of global slavery as we have it? Drawing from J. Fynn-Paul’s theoretical concept of ‘slaving zones,’ we invite prospective participants to reflect on how this concept might gel with their own work.
