Black Inter-American Mobility and Autobiography in the Age of Revolutions (1760-1860)

Project description

Autobiographies and black inter-American mobility

From slave and captivity narratives to secular travelogues and religious memoirs, autobiographies have played a defining role in shaping black identities and experiences in the Americas. The interdisciplinary EU-funded BIMAAR project explores the ways four major types of transnational autobiography by black authors from have addressed varying forms of black mobility in the Americas during the Age of Revolutions and its aftermath until the onset of the United States Civil War. Home to the renowned Institute of Black Atlantic Research and its world-class scholars of the Early Black Americas and Black Atlantic, the University of Central Lancashire provides an ideal host institution for this study.
