More about this picture
Credits: Jay Ramier.

This special issue is devoted to the narrative forms of post-slavery, the complex period following the formal abolition of slavery. It interrogates this concept through the narratives of individual (ex-slave) lives, as they are (re-)circulated in literature, film, translation, movement and militant anti-slavery associations. The contributors cross-reference and confront fragmented and normative representations of post-slavery, thereby highlighting its polyphony, even cacophony.
