Between Slavery and Post-slavery Citizenship, Dependence, and Abolitionism in African and Indian Ocean Societies

Between Slavery and Post-slavery

Citizenship, Dependence, and Abolitionism in African and Indian Ocean Societies

Hosted by the University of Mauritius in collaboration with the University of Birmingham and SLAFNET

10-12 April 2018

Problem statement

In October 2014, the international conference Slavery in Africa: Past, Legacies and Present (SLAFCO) was held at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA) in Nairobi. This three-day conference brought together over sixty scholars from all over the world and representatives of African anti-slavery NGOs and civil society organizations.

Building on this first experience of exchange between researchers and activists, ‘Between Slavery and Post-Slavery’ will focus on (1) the recent legacies of past slavery; (2) contemporary forms of exploitation akin to slavery; and (3) the political mobilisation of African grassroots activists and politicians in various countries in Africa and in Atlantic Ocean and Indian Ocean islands.

(1) Legacies of past slavery: This workshop will explore the political and social marginalization of persons of slave descent in different African societies today. In some contexts, groups of slave descendants are classified, collectively, through labels that indicate slave origins in particular African languages. These labels have derogatory connotations and are often accompanied by ideas about the sociocultural and biogenetic inferiority of those classified as slave descendants. These groups suffer from specific vulnerabilities ranging from political exclusion and ‘second-class citizenship’, to economic exploitation and restricted opportunities for social mobility, to increased exposure to violence and exactions. Contributions focused on slave descent will study identity-based discrimination: what forms it takes and what responses it elicits in terms of resistance and grassroots activism.

(2) Slavery today: A second strand of phenomena examined here is the resilience of actual slavery, as an institution that enables control tantamount to possession over those enslaved. In spite of worldwide legal abolition, slavery has not ended. In the African continent illegal enslavement takes different forms. It can be a consequence of discrimination based on slave descent in areas where erstwhile slave-owners retained power and slave descendants remained vulnerable to extreme forms of exploitation. But slavery does not affect only persons of slave descent. Like elsewhere in the world, in Africa too, there is a persistent demand for cheap and easily controllable labour and exploitable persons. Human trafficking, especially in women and children, is well documented in different African regions and between Africa and other countries. Furthermore, recent African wars resulted in abductions and violence directed against civilians, primarily women, leading to the prosecution of perpetrators for crimes of sexual slavery. Some political movements, such as Boko Haram in Northern Nigeria, openly advocate the legitimacy of slavery as an institution. Contributions focused on slavery will consider its manifestations, discourses about slavery’s (il)legitimacy, and the resistance of those enslaved or at risk of enslavement.

(3) African anti-slavery movements and grassroots activism: A third axis for reflection and discussion will focus on African anti-slavery NGOs and forms of political mobilization against slavery and the discrimination targeted at slave descendants. Some researchers described African anti-slavery NGOs as phenomena of extraversion, aimed at accessing international funding through links with ‘Western’ anti- slavery organisations. But African abolitionist movements are diverse. Some engage more with national politics than with international donors, as in the case of the Zoam Marxist movement founded by Malagasy slave descendants in the 1970s. Undoubtedly some of the main African anti-slavery NGOs benefit from the support of international anti-slavery organisations. But this does not make their struggles any less ‘real’. Their membership and opposition are national and local. Hence the question is not only whether the agenda of African anti-slavery NGOs chimes with the goals of global anti-slavery organisations: it clearly does. More specifically, we invite contributions that explore the meanings and functions of abolitionism in Africa today; the challenges identified by the leaders and grassroots members of these organisations, their driving ideas and political strategies.

Questions

  1. Slave descent, post-slavery, and classificatory slavery:
    1. Following legal abolition, what were the opportunities available to different groups of

      enslaved persons in different African regions and contexts?

    2. What strategies did different categories of slave descendants unfold, and why?
    3. How, if at all, did relations between former slaves and slave-owners change?
    4. Why are certain groups classified as coming ‘from slavery’, with what consequences, and

      giving rise to what forms of resistance and/or identity politics?

    5. How was slavery, as an institution, transformed following legal abolition? What forms of

      labour replaced slave labour? How were the roles of slaves in sexual, reproductive, and domestic domains reconfigured?

  2. Slavery today:
    1. What types of slavery, if any, exist in contemporary African societies? What groups are involved? How do war and conflict influence practices of enslavement?
    2. What forms of resistance, and by which actors, does contemporary slavery gives rise to?
    3. How does the international definition of slavery, based on the 1926 Slavery Convention of the League of Nations, relate to contemporary African phenomena and national legislations?
    4. How is slavery defined and characterised in contexts marked by legal pluralism?
    5. Who, if anyone, defends the legitimacy of slavery today, through which arguments, and with

      what practical consequences?

  3. African anti-slavery movements, neo-abolitionism, and grassroots activism:
    1. What forms does abolitionism take in Africa today, what practices does it give rise to, and what are the ideological roots of different African abolitionist discourses?
    2. What are the main forms of anti-slavery advocacy in Africa today (e.g. national and international NGOs, political parties, grassroots movements, religious associations, etc.)?
    3. Who becomes a member of African anti-slavery movements and why?
    4. What challenges does African anti-slavery activism face and why?
    5. How, if at all, do African abolitionist movements differ from those of African diasporas in Europe and the Americas?

Appel à contributions : Regards croisés sur le patrimoine malgache, transmission et régénération d’un héritage vivant

Voici l’appel à communications pour un colloque international qui a lieu à l’Université de La Réunion, en février de cette année, sur le thème du patrimoine et de sa transmission :

« Regards croisés sur le patrimoine malgache, transmission et régénération d’un héritage vivant ».

Présentation rapide : « Ces journées de réflexion constituent le fruit de rencontres nées autour du film Songs for Madagascar de Marie Clémence et César Paes produit en 2016. Au vu de la richesse et de l’importance de la question du patrimoine, les principaux enjeux consistent dans la façon de maintenir vivant et même de continuer à façonner et de transmettre cet héritage partiellement ancré dans le passé. Il s’agit de le régénérer pour que les générations futures puissent se construire avec cet apport. « 

Date limite : 25 janvier.

Compte rendu du workshop « Slave Trade in the Indian Ocean and Indonesian Archipelago Worlds (16th to 19th Century) »

Les 10 et 11 novembre a eu lieu le workshop  « Slave Trade in the Indian Ocean and Indonesian Archipelago Worlds (16th to 19th Century): New Research, Results and Comparisons » organisé par Matthias van Rossum, Titas Chakraborty et Ulbe Bosma à l’Instituut voor sociale geschiedenis (Institut pour l’histoire sociale – IISG) à Amsterdam. Les principaux axes étaient le volume, la dynamique et les sources de la traite des esclaves dans l’océan Indien.

Le but était de commencer à répondre à certaines questions, même des plus basiques, sur lesquelles nous n’avons que peu de connaissance. En effet, on sait encore peu de choses sur les origines des captifs, la répartition des sexes et des âges ni sur le nombre d’esclaves qui ont été victimes de la traite. Ces différents axes ont permis de croiser les sources concernant le rôle des acteurs, Européens et locaux, dans le temps et l’espace et a révélé la complexité des réseaux commerciaux multidirectionnels liant les quatre coins de l’océan Indien. Dans ce même sens quelques nouvelles méthodes pour estimer le volume ont vu le jour.

Les organisateurs ont réussi leur pari à faire venir quelques grands spécialistes tels que Richard B. Allen, Nigel Worden et Preben Kaarsholm. Ensemble avec une nouvelle génération de chercheurs des discussions très fructueuses ont eu lieu sur un sujet qui commence à recevoir de plus en plus d’attention du monde scientifique entier. Notamment sur l’avenir de cette discipline qui cumulera dès demain davantage de recherche, mais surtout d’unir les forces individuelles en croisant les différentes sources, ainsi que les diffnstitutionnelles comme avec la nécessité de créer une base de données sur la traite des esclaves. Cela  devrait se concrétiser au sein de l’IISG dans quelques années.

Ce workshop ne doit pas être vu comme un événement isolé et unique. C’est un premier pas vers l’avenir car déjà, un prochain workshop a été planifié en Suède pour septembre 2017 dont le thème sera les connexions entre l’asservissement et le commerce des esclaves.

Conférence D. BurguetDans le cadre des conférences de la Société des Africanistes, Delphine Burguet présentera ses travaux, le 1er décembre autour d’une présentation intitulée :

Les devins-guéris­seurs à Mada­gas­car. Pouvoir et contre-pouvoir au fil du temps

La confé­rence présente l’une des figures histo­riques majeures du paysage reli­gieux et socio-poli­tique malgache, une figure ambigüe et complexe ratta­chée au statut de celui que l’on nomme commu­né­ment « devin-guéris­seur ». Appelé ombiasy, le mpimasy ou encore le mpana­zary est, histo­rique­ment, un acteur central dans la gestion commu­nau­taire au côté des souve­rains et chefs tradi­tion­nels et est « l’homme de la synthèse ». Ce person­nage bien ancré dans des pratiques locales et ances­trales connaît toute­fois, au fil du temps et en fonc­tion des projets poli­tiques, tout autant le respect, le pres­tige et la puis­sance que la crainte et le rejet. Figure centrale pour les tradi­tio­na­listes, il est aujourd’­hui situé en péri­phé­rie des enjeux sociaux, reli­gieux, médi­caux et poli­tiques.
