Vacature PhD position The Global Business of Slave Trade

The International Institute of Social History (IISH-KNAW) has opened a PhD position for the project The Global Business of Slave Trade (1,0 fte.), for a period of 48 months. The Project Global Business of Slave Trade: Patterns, Actors and Gains in the Early Modern Dutch and Iberian Slave Trade will study the main patterns of the Dutch, Portuguese and Spanish slave trades in the Indian Ocean, Indonesian Archipelago, and the South China Sea. It will do so by examining in detail how and by whom were these commercial flows and operations organized, who gained and lost by being involved in these activities, and what participation in these commercial streams meant for the economies of these European Empires in Asia.
