Sarah Hannon

PROGRAM: History  

Sarah Hannon re-examines slavery and the nature of emancipation in Bermuda from a post-colonial perspective. Much of the written history surrounding the emancipation of slaves in Bermuda has been framed by colonialism. Sarah Hannon takes a post-colonial approach to re-examining this topic, with hopes of contributing to a broader history narrative that acknowledges the centrality of slavery to colonial Bermudian society.
