Placing Unfree Labour: Slavery old and new

The 2015 seminar series Slavery old and new: Labour exploitation through the ages and around the globe, a joint research initiative between the Institute of Comparative Law and the Hans & Tamar Oppenheimer Chair in Public International Law at McGill University and the Harriet Tubman Institute, examines the legal conceptualization of labour exploitation.

Kendra Strauss, Associate Member of the Simon Fraser University Department of Geography and Assistant Professor at the Labour Studies Program & The Morgan Centre for Labour Research, will explore how feminist and legal geographical approaches to unfree labour – in particular forced labour and trafficking – unsettle and potentially enrich legal analyses of regulatory regimes.

Kendra Strauss
Thursday, March 19, 2015, 1:00-2:30PM
via video-conference at York University (Stedman Lecture Hall 120E)
