Ingrid Greenfield (Villa I Tatti, Harvard); Trevor Burnard (University of Hull); and Miki Sugiura (Hosei University, Tokyo) will present their work.

Carletti’s activities as a slave trader in the Atlantic and the purchase of slaves in Asia have long been a topic of debate. What was Carletti’s moral and religious position on Atlantic slavery and the slave trade? How did he consider slavery in Asia?

We welcome Ingrid Greenfield (Villa I Tatti, Harvard); Trevor Burnard (University of Hull); and Miki Sugiura (Hosei University, Tokyo) to present on these issues.

Speakers will bring their own knowledge and expertise to bear on the shaping of a conversation on different aspects of early modern global history, placing Carletti’s My Voyage Around the World at the centre.

The three presentations will be followed by an open discussion among participants.
