Sociologist Orlando Patterson does landmark work on slavery and freedom.

“Being Nobody?” Honored the thirtieth anniversary of the publication of Slavery and Social Death by Orlando Patterson, Harvard’s Cowles professor of sociology. Giving a birthday party for a scholarly book is a rarity in itself. Even more unusual, the symposium’s 11 presenters were not sociologists. They were classicists and historians who gave papers on slavery in ancient Rome, the neo-Assyrian empire, the Ottoman Middle East, the early Han empire, West Africa in the nineteenth century, medieval Europe, and eighteenth-century Brazil, among other topics.

But Patterson is no ordinary academician. Patterson is a historical-comparative sociologist who has written extensively on race relations and, especially, slavery and freedom. Many scholars oversimplify culture by equating it simply with values, Patterson says. “Culture is a very tricky concept,” he continues. Revista Cuadernos Americanos. THECARIBBEANWRITER.ORG.

Yesu Persaud Centre for Caribbean Studies - University of Warwick

It was the first such Centre in the UK to recognise the significance of the Caribbean region and its historically interdependent linkages with the UK and the world. Its principal aim is to stimulate teaching and research on the Caribbean. It also encourages the study of the Caribbean in an Atlantic context, emphasising African, North and South American, Asian and European influences from a comparative, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspective. Additionally, it serves as a national forum for individuals and organisations with an interest in and concern for the diaspora as well as those countries bordering the Caribbean. The current director of the Centre is Fabienne Viala (Hispanic Studies). Warwick Transatlantic Fellowships: Walter Rodney Lecture 2014: Professor Verene Shepherd.
