Andrés Bello Chair Professor Keila Grinberg First Public Lecture: Slavery, Illegal Enslavement and International Conflicts in 19th-Century South America

Venue: KJCC Auditorium • 53 Washington Square South

Keila Grinberg, Andrés Bello Chair Professor for Spring 2018, will devote her first public lecture to the ways in which the presence of Brazilian slavery and the illegal enslavement of women and children on the border between Brazil and Uruguay affected international relations between the countries of the La Plata region in the nineteenth century. This contributed fundamentally to the growing tensions that led to the beginning of the Paraguay war (1864-1870), whose causes , however, have been debated ever since the war ended, and remain controversial among historians.
