EUROTAST Symposium: Which Way Now? Understanding Transatlantic Slavery in Scandinavia
RADIO PODCAST: 12 August 2013
“Big Picture Science: Digging Our Past” (Interview begins: 14:54 mins)
Associate partner Professor Fatimah Jackson discusses the EUROTAST project and explores how the disciplines bio archaeology and genetics are developing methods to better understand the history and biological legacies of the transatlantic slave trade.
“Thinking forwards about the research of EUROTAST fellows, Professor Richardson emphasised the need to draw strength from an interdisciplinary perspective, which would help to enrich the hard data into a historical narrative that highlighted personal stories and experiences – ultimately giving context and place to lives that were ineradicably altered by this human tragedy. Professor Richardson also urged the EUROTAST fellows to “become stakeholders in the slave trade voyages database” – a landmark international virtual initiative, hosted by Emory University in Atlanta, that seeks to build a detailed picture of the port origins and numbers of individuals captured on the African coast and transported to the Americas.”
