Reckoning with Racism

The Social Memory of the Slave Trade

This day-long symposium will showcase new directions for public institutions to engage and grapple with the history, memory and legacies of slavery and colonialism in Portugal, across Europe and throughout the Lusophone world. Scholars, curators, preservationists, and museum professionals from Portugal, Angola, Brazil, Mozambique, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States will explore important questions, catalyze conversations, and address questions about diversity in participation, research, and representation of this past and its presence in our present questions of social and racial justice in local, national, and global contexts.
