Fred D’Aguiar and the memorialisation of slavery
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter is focused on D'Aguiar, who struggles with the problems of representing the past of slave trading. It observes that he shares Dabydeen and Phillips' concerns with the historical record about the slave trade, and notes that he has written about the issues surrounding examining accounts of received history. This chapter considers the possibility that D'Aguiar is deeply troubled by the act of writing about the memory of slavery. It also tries to answer the question of how people are supposed to remember slavery a hundred and fifty years after its end and with the lack of witnesses.
