This website contains resources for teaching slavery studies and a range of contemporary issues and debates related to slavery.
It has been designed and developed by teachers, researchers, and academics in France, United Kingdom, Haiti, and Senegal working within the EURESCL project.
Structural and computational development of the site is the work of a team of programmers from the CRDP (regional resource center for education) of l'académie de Créteil, the local education authority and completed by CIRESC and Gens de la Caraïbe.
The objective of this workpackage is to present the key issues associated with the slave trade and slaveries and their abolitions, over the centuries, in clearly-expressed and creatively-designed classroom guides, accompanied by up-to-the-minute teaching and learning materials.
The guides and materials are made accessible through this website to both teachers and pupils alike, but also to a range of stakeholders.
The issues the workpackage addresses are of prime importance to young people in Africa, America and Europe today. By constructing this website we offer these young people a shared platform on which to explore the history of the slave trade and slavery and the impact of this legacy in the modern world.
By bringing international research knowledge straight to the teacher in this easily accessible and ready-to-use form, the workpackage demonstrates how the academic research community can contribute immediately and directly to contemporary debates on the legacy of slavery and the slave trade in Europe and Africa, and to evolving debates on global citizenship and identity around the world.
