Tessa Murphy Named Humanities Faculty Fellow for Research on Histories of Enslaved People

Until slavery was abolished, British Crown colonies in the Caribbean kept detailed registries of every enslaved person on an estate. Their records included specific places of origin and familial connections to others enslaved on the same plantation or in the same household. Tessa Murphy’s fellowship will support her work on creating a publicly accessible database of the people enslaved in British Caribbean Crown colonies and an associated book.
