Slavery, Race & Representation: Charmaine A. Nelson and Andrew Hunter in Conversation

Free shuttle bus departs OCAD U (100 McCaul St) at 1 pm, to return at 4:30 pm

Charmaine A. Nelson -- currently the William Lyon Mackenzie King Visiting Professor of Canadian Studies at Harvard University (2017-18) -- will present her recent research on fugitive slaves in Canada and discuss its role in understanding the experiences of Black communities in the 18th and 19th centuries, living in the regions that became Canada. This will be followed by a conversation between Nelson and Andrew Hunter, Senior Curator at the Art Gallery of Guelph, around the visual culture of slavery, race and representation and how it is being addressed by galleries and museums in Canada.
