Tubman Seminar: Tracking Caribbean Slavery through Early Maps
Apr 10, 2012, 2pm-3:30pm
The Tubman Weekly Seminar Series invites interested students and scholars to attend a seminar by William C. Found, a geographer, environmentalist and University Professor Emeritus at York University.
In 2011, Dr. Found donated 141 historical maps and prints to the Clara Thomas Archives and Special Collections at York University. It comprises facsimiles, photographic copies and photocopies of original maps and prints originally published between the 16th and 19th century. His seminar will highlight the importance of these historical maps and prints in carrying out research on the Caribbean world in the pre- and post-emancipation periods. The collection contains information on the British, Danish, Dutch, French, Spanish and Swedish Caribbean colonies, and is an invaluable resource for the York University community and visiting researchers.
We welcome participants to come and learn more about this collection! Come out and join the discussion! To see our program of speakers, check the Tubman website.
