Giornate di studio e colloqui presso l'Università di Nottingham, U.K.

Dal 6 al 9 settembre 2010 sono in programma presso la Rutland Hall della Università di Nottingham 4 dense giornate di studio dedicate al tema "Slave, Forced and Free Labour in Comparative Historical Perspective", cioè Schiavitù, Lavoro libero e forzato in una prospettiva storica comparativa. In breve, un nutrito gruppo di esperti docenti e accademici di varie università darà vita ad un ampio e costruttivo dibattito su un tema che riguarda il nostro passato, ma anche il nostro presente, per cui non si potrà dire che gli studiosi si interessano esclusivamente del passato. Passato e presente, quindi, a confronto in un convegno internazionale organizzato e ospitato da una delle università più prestigiose della vecchia Europa: Nottingham. Qui di seguito troverete l'elenco dettagliato dei relatori e delle sedi di provenienza, insieme ai temi sviluppati giorno per giorno. Un grazie, come di consueto, a COMPITUM.FR, per la collaborazione sempre apprezzatissima da chi ha a cuore la vera cultura.
