Welcome to the blog for the Wilberforce Institute at the University of Hull. Well known for our work on historical and contemporary slavery, we are also developing our research interests in the area of children’s exploitation. We hope to use this virtual platform to share with you our ideas, our activities, and our outputs as they develop. If you would like to know more, please contact Dr Judith Spicksley on Judith.Spicksley@hull.ac.uk, or subscribe below.
You will find details of what’s coming up shortly on the ‘Events’ tab above, and a list of all our events for this academic year on the ‘Lecture Programme’ tab.
