The Impact of Slavery on the Former Netherlands Antilles

Thursday 11 April 2024, 8 pm - 9:30 pm
Dutch lecture and conversation

Stories, rituals and songs play an important role in the identity of formerly enslaved people and their descendants. They tell us how the past was experienced through the eyes of this oppressed group and serve as a means to underscore their own identity and culture. The history of slavery is not only behind us, but works through into the present. Come hear anthropologist and Thinker in Residence Rose Mary Allen discuss the impact of slavery on the cultural identity of the former Netherlands Antilles.

What will you reflect on? Examining what is of value.

For more than a hundred years, philosophers, theologians and religious scholars at Radboud University have reflected on the world in all its aspects. They bring worlds into view that remained hidden, because they speak for themselves or were never suspected. In doing so, our researchers, lecturers and alumni offer reflections to a society they are part of.

You have a part to play.
