Lecture/Seminar Faithful Ties Make Good Colonists: Africans in Colonial North and South America 2017-02-23 16:30:00

Presentation by Renée Soulodre-La France, CSRS Visiting Research Fellow
“They are extremely fickle, and peculiarly wild in their religious notions.” Such critical assessments of the character, belief, and practice of formerly enslaved people of African origins were shared by many colonial officials in both the British and the Spanish Empires in America. This research charts the crucial role that conversion and religion played in the projects to settle Africans and their descendants as freed people of colour in Panama and Nova Scotia at the end of the 18th century. An analysis of religious practice and beliefs puts into stark relief the uneasy jostling that framed the desires of both Africans and their descendants in the larger Atlantic Diaspora, as well as those of their neighbors and civil and religious leaders within both imperial systems.
