A five-week summer institute for twenty-five college and university faculty, exploring slave rebellions in the American South, the Caribbean, and the eastern coast of Central and South America.

Our goal in this proposed Institute is to build upon the insights of the transnational and Atlantic approaches to history, and upon the pioneering work that has been done in resistance studies over the last twenty years. We will study a series of slave rebellions which occurred in what we have called the 'tropical Atlantic,' and what other scholars have termed the 'extended Caribbean,' in other words, the plantation-centered colonies of the American South, the Caribbean, and the eastern coast of the Central and South American mainland in the era of revolutions throughout the Americas against imperial authority.
