Bringing the São José Back into Memory

april-5-ss-forumSocial Sciences Forum — Low Lecture 
“Bringing the São José Back into Memory”
Paul Gardullo, Curator, National Museum of African American History and Culture
Wednesday, April 5, 4 p.m.
Albin O. Kuhn Library 7th floor 

From No Return – Dr. Gardullo’s talk will focus on the complex ongoing vectors of collaborative international research, archaeology, and memory work in investigating the voyage of the São José. This Portuguese slave ship provides a window into bringing the massive role of the transatlantic slave trade down to a human scale to help us understand the global connections and enduring legacies of this story from Mozambique, to South Africa, Brazil, Portugal, and the United States. In so doing, it provides a new model for how museums and research institutions can operate in the 21st century.

Admission is free.
