Fellowship Work Summary, 2019–20

Daniel Livesay completed the research on his forthcoming manuscript Endless Bondage: Old Age in New World Slavery. He expanded upon his initial areas of inquiry to include a new chapter on African notions of old age, and their influences on the slave trade and plantation slavery in the Americas. During his semester at the Center, he also organized thousands of pages of research notes to create a detailed outline for the manuscript, drafted one chapter for the manuscript, and outlined the remaining six chapters.
