Join us for this round table discussion of the themes raised in Maxine Berg and Pat Hudson’s new book.
In their new book, Slavery, Capitalism and the Industrial Revolution, which forms the basis of this event, Maxine Berg and Pat Hudson ‘follow the money’ to document in revealing detail the role of slavery in the making of Britain’s industrial revolution. Slavery played a crucial role in Britain’s development as a global superpower and the forces set in motion by this trade seeped into almost every aspect of the economy and society.
This event is open to all and in-person only, a recording will be available shorty after the event.
