Sinha's Book Generates Panel Discussion at Yale University

On February 18 former ISI Board member Manisha Sinha's book, The Slave's Cause: A History of Abolition, will be the center of discussion at a panel featuring some of the most respected scholars from history, African American Studies, and American Studies.

Sinha's book was published by Yale University Press and argues that the Haitian revolution and slave resistance shaped the ideology and tactics of abolition. The panelists will include Eric Foner, Professor of History at Columbia, John Stauffer, Professor of English and African and African American Studies at Harvard, and Andrew Delbanco, Professor of American Studies at Columbia University. More information on the panel, which will be held from 4-6 p.m. at the Hall of Graduate Studies Room 211, can be found here
