University of Glasgow

Slavery, Forced Migration & Reparative Justice [IntM]

  • 24 months

Program Description

  • The programme offers a unique opportunity to study the history of slavery and reparatory justice from a global and comparative perspective, building on the expertise of seven European universities.
  • You will have the chance to study in three different European countries.
  • The city of Glasgow provides an excellent location for the first semester of the programme. Glasgow was central to the European trade of sugar, tobacco and cotton from the Americas, a past reflected in Glasgow's monumental downtown area and in the collections of the city's world-class libraries, archives and museums.
  • The programme includes a summer school at Radboud University on Slavery, Forced Migration and Indentured Labour: a Digital Humanities Approach.



You will spend the first semester in Glasgow, the second in Nijmegen, and the third in either Bonn, Wroclaw, Lisbon, Barcelona or Nantes, depending on your chosen study track. In each semester, you will have a combination of core and optional courses. The local programme convenors will work with you to ensure a sensible portfolio of courses is constructed, according to your personal aims and objectives.

In the fourth semester you will write a research dissertation, normally at the university where you have spent your third semester. Based on your research topic, secondary supervision will be provided by staff from one of the other universities.
