HIST 16.02 Plantations and Slavery in the Americas

The plantation evolved in the Americas as a place for European exploitation of colonial environments and enslaved laborers. It played a foundational role in shaping settler colonialism, racial slavery, and capitalism across the Americas and it has also framed debates around the legacies of slavery and colonial appropriation up to the present. This course explores the evolution of the plantation as an institution and an ideology of racialized exploitation, but also traces enslaved peoples’ resistance to the plantation and their construction of rival geographies and institutions.
