Christopher L. Brown

South Africa

Christopher is a historian of Britain and the British empire, principally in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, with special emphasis on the comparative history of slavery and abolition, and with secondary interests in the Atlantic slave trade and the Age of Revolutions. His recent research centres on the history of European experience on the African coast at the height of the Atlantic slave trade, and continues early commitments to the rise and fall of slavery in the British Empire. Chris has written for The Nation, The New York Times, and the London Review of Books, among others.
