    Can we talk about a “public sphere” existing in isolated outposts of the eighteenth-century British empire? Kathleen Wilson, a SUNY Distinguished Professor of History from Stony Brook University, will be talking about how Fort Marlborough operated as both center and periphery in the world of the East India Company.

    We are fortunate to have Richard Bell, an Associate Professor of History at the University of Maryland, give a talk at Yale-NUS College.

    This talk follows the odyssey of five free African American Boys kidnapped from Philadelphia in 1825, who were marched more than a thousand miles to Mississippi for sale as slaves. It situates their ordeal in the context of a massive wave of abductions and forced migrations and explains how their particular experiences impacted the Anti-Slavery Movement and the Free Black Resistance, setting the stage for the Civil War.

    The talk will take place on Wednesday October 24 at 6 – 7:30 PM, Classroom 15.

    Refreshments will be served
