The Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition, part of the MacMillan Center at Yale University, is pleased to announce the progress of its Modern Slavery Working Group, established in October, 2016. This scholarly community connects leading scholars based in the humanities and the social sciences to foster cross-disciplinary dialogue and expand knowledge regarding contemporary forced labor worldwide. In addition to the Working Group, other Gilder Lehrman Center (GLC) endeavors focused on modern slavery and human trafficking include year-long teaching and research fellowships, public programs, and media productions. These initiatives are made possible by generous support from the Robina Foundation in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
