Join us as we celebrate the launch of the “Research Agenda for future research into Dutch colonial slavery and its afterlives 2025-2035”.

April 12 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Following last June’s publication of State and Slavery, Rose Mary Allen, Esther Captain, Matthias van Rossum, and Urwin Vyent have formulated a Research Agenda to guide future research into Dutch colonial slavery and its afterlives. The Agenda will be released on 12 April 2024 in Dutch, English, and Papiamentu. To celebrate this, an insightful afternoon will be organized in Nijmegen. The launch will be presented by Nancy Jouwe. With reflections on the Rearch Agenda (among others by Luc Alofs, Aruba), interviews with academics from different disciplines and a dance performance (Farida Nabibaks). The main language will be Dutch.

The Rearch Agenda is divided into two sections: ‘Aspects of Dutch Colonial Slavery Worldwide’, and ‘Colonial Slavery: Afterlives and Contemporary Approaches’. It makes suggestions for themes that have so far remained underexposed but which, based on debates in science and society, can be expected to demand more attention in the near future. You can find more information on the Research Agenda on our website: https://www.staatenslavernij.nl/en/research-agenda/
