Past Events

On January 18 and 19, 2018, GALACSI welcomed Dr. Natasha Lightfoot to UGA and GSU to talk about her amazing book Troubling Freedom: Antigua and the Aftermath of British Emancipation (Duke, 2015). Dr. Lightfoot delivered two engaging book talks that addressed the key themes of the book as well as the research and writing process. The lectures led to thoughtful questions and conversations with graduate students and faculty on each campus. GALACSI faculty also had the opportunity to read and workshop a chapter from Dr. Lightfoot’s new book project, “‘So Far to Leeward’: The Circuitous Paths of Eliza Moore’s Freedom Journey.”
