Studying Slavery and Its Legacies at the College of Charleston

A List of Scholarship and Recent Course Offerings

Scope and Purpose

This list is intended to identify scholarship and courses in which colleagues at C of C have studied slavery and its legacies. These legacies are widespread, so perhaps it is not surprising that as of June 2019, over sixty C of C faculty are listed as authors of relevant publications in the listings below, and that over forty-five faculty have been identified as teaching courses related to slavery and its legacies since Fall 2016. These publications and courses cover many aspects of slavery and its legacies--the history of slavery, the history of C of C and Charleston, racial identities and the construction of race in the U. S. and elsewhere; the experiences and cultural traditions of enslaved people and their descendants; connections between the diaspora and Africa, etc.  By identifying this scholarship and teaching, the Center for the Study of Slavery seeks to encourage C of C faculty and students to continue building upon each other’s work. 


  • By June 2019, the citations in this list were not all standardized into Chicago style. This should be completed as soon as practical. It could also be helpful to list the home department of the author of each publication.
  • When all citations have been consistently formatted, this checklist can be made publicly available. An updated list could be published annually as part of the work of the Center for the Study of Slavery in Charleston.
  • The June 2019 version of this list covers publications and courses, but does not include work in the following categories:
    • Master’s theses, bachelor’s essays, class research projects, and other student-authored work that has not yet been published. 
    • Curated exhibits (both virtual and online)
    • Archival materials available via C of C’s library

In addition to maintaining this webpage,  each of these categories could usefully be added to this list in the future.

  • This list is not a comprehensive bibliography on the subject of slavery and its legacies, à la the #CharlestonSyllabus. However, a C of C Libguide on slavery is available at Another project for CSSC could be to develop a very selective bibliography of academic publications and reference works that our faculty consider most important for understanding slavery and its legacies, with special attention to those that relate to the Charleston area and have been useful in the classroom. Similarly, CSSC could collect syllabi from at least some of the courses listed here. 



This section is categorized in two groups:

Group One contains a variety of subject headings, listed below. 
Group Two, “History,” contains studies of individuals, groups, places, events, and conditions related to slavery, attempts to sustain or dismantle slavery, and the legacies of slavery and its afterlives, all in North America.  These historically-oriented studies are so numerous that it seemed best to organize them by location and present them as a separate group, although there is often obvious topical overlap with subject headings in the first group.
