What We Talk About When We Talk About Slavery

(p.211) Epilogue
Runaway Genres

Yogita Goyal

NYU Press

The epilogue turns to current surveys of the cultural landscape of slavery, concluding that even as widespread ignorance about the history of the institution continues, many readers express fatigue with the subject of trauma. Considering the scene of the classroom alongside persistent analogies to slavery in media coverage of Central American refugees seeking asylum in the United States in 2018, the epilogue urges a new comparative literacy that allows us to understand convergences with the global present alongside differences from the Atlantic past.

Keywords:   slavery, analogy, refugees, trauma, Atlantic, global
