‘In but not of the West’: Caribbean histories and geographies

Dr David Lambert is Reader of Caribbean History in the Department of History at Warwick University and a former Visiting Fellow at Exeter College, University of Oxford. In 2009, he was awarded a Philip Leverhulme Prize. He works on slavery, abolition and empire in the Caribbean and wider Atlantic world in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. His current book, Mastering the Niger: James MacQueen's Map of Africa and the Struggle over Atlantic Slavery (University of Chicago Press), examines the entanglements between slavery, exploration, cartography and empire.

The lecture starts at 5.00pm, with tea from 4.00pm and a poster presentation by Mark Tumbridge, the David Nicholls Memorial Trust Postgraduate Scholar at University of Warwick, on 'Representations of Indentured Labour and Asian Presence in Caribbean Cultural Texts from the 19th Century to the Present'.

A wine reception will be held following the lecture at 6.30pm, with an informal dinner at Regent's Park College at 7.00pm. The cost of the dinner will be £10, no advance booking necessary.
