SUMMER FELLOWSHIP REIMAGINING RACE AND COLONIALISM IN NEW ENGLAND
Applications are now being accepted for summer 2022 fellows seeking to participate in the project entitled, Reimagining New England Histories: Historical Injustice, Sovereignty and Freedom. The Frank C. Munson Institute at Mystic Seaport Museum, in collaboration with the Center for the Study of Slavery & Justice at Brown University and Williams College, will hold classes at Mystic Seaport Museum to interrogate the region’s past. The history and legacies of settler colonialism, racial slavery, servitude, dispossession, Indigenous resistance and African American strategies for fashioning pursuits of freedom will be considered. A distinctive feature of this summer program will be the framing of these topics within the context of New England’s maritime setting, an environment that fostered interaction, mobility, and exploitation.
