2015 UCL workshop:
In November 2015 the Legacies of British Slave-ownership project at University College, London (UCL LBS) held one of their full-day outreach workshops in Exeter, and we collaborated with them. About 70 people attended. Both UCL and LDSG presented papers.
In conjunction with that workshop, UCL produced a very informative exhibition of five posters about the history of slave-ownership. Three posters outline the overall national story, while the other two, for which the LDSG contributed material from their research, focus on Devon:
- The Slave Trade
- Life in the Colonies
- Slave-owners in Britain
- Devon and Slavery 1
- Devon and Slavery 2
These posters can be printed in A4 format, for use in the classroom.
Laminated copies of these posters (each measuring 33 inches high by 70 inches wide) are freely available for display in schools, libraries and museums around Devon. So far they have been displayed at the Devon Heritage Centre, Exeter Community Centre, the Devon and Exeter Institution, Tiverton Museum, and at a few schools. If you would like to borrow them, please contact DDE at firstname.lastname@example.org
