In this episode, we continue the discussion that began in episode 6 of season 4 of the SAPIENS podcast, a conversation that examines examines “Slavery, Sustenance, and Resistance”, or what we might think of as “Setting the Table for an Archaeology of Resistance”. We are joined by Dr. Peggy Brunache, the Director of the Beniba Centre for Slavery Studies at the University of Glasgow, and Dr. Kelley Fanto Deetz, Director of Collections and Visitor Engagement at Stratford Hall Plantation.
