Labor, Free Labor, and Freedom in the Post–Emancipation Caribbean

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper will reflect on two historical processes. The first is a theorization of slave labor in the Americas as a form of production which reconfigures the conventional narratives about the birth of capitalism and the relationship between labor, alienation and commodification . Secondly positing that the black slave body was a site of appropriation not as labor but as human form , the paper will argue about different conceptions of freedom which emerged in the 10th century in the Caribbean. Using three set of archives, the travels of the American Anti-Slavery Society advocates, James Thomas and Joseph Kimball in the Caribbean in 1837 and the 1861 travels of William Sewell and his subsequent articles published in the NYT, and the archive of the trials of slaves who were involved in the 1831 rebellion in Jamaica , the essay will illustrate how the slaves attempted to construct their freedom and attempted to reconfigure the meaning of work.
