  • Bio:

    Henry Snow is a historian of labor, race, and gender in the Atlantic World. Their work asks how contemporary structures of inequality were formed in the long eighteenth century, how ordinary people fought back, and what lessons these struggles have for the present. Currently, their scholarship focuses on the role local conflicts in Atlantic ports played in three global transformations during the Age of Revolutions-revolution, abolition, and mechanization.

  • Watch a brief clip in which Henry discusses their work "'Exact to a nicety in calculations of profit and loss:' Global Anti-Blackness, Control Science, and the Rise of Industrial Capitalism", including its relevance to understanding anti-Blackness today.
