Discuss new world slavery and its role in the emergence of global modernity

Feb 18th, 2015

Throughout history slavery has adapted fluidly to a changing world order, as it continues to do today.

The precise cultural and social mechanisms that make slavery possible in any one country both reflect the indigenous society and evolve over time in adaptation to changes in its culture. Thus, the slavery of modern Pakistan and India reflect the historical feudalism of these countries, but in new forms of bondage which have grown from, but are not, feudalism. In this century, slavery has been caught up in that process which we call globalisation. In many ways, the transformation of slavery is an exemplar of that process, but this transformation is little observed and less understood.
