On Monday, June 10, 2019 Louis P. Nelson, Vice Provost for Academic Outreach and Professor of Architectural History at the University of Virginia, will be our guest speaker.
He is a specialist in the built environments of the early modern Atlantic world, with published work on the American South, the Caribbean, and West Africa. His research engages the spaces of enslavement in West Africa and in the Americas, working to document and interpret the buildings and landscapes that shaped the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
Nelson is working on a second collaborative project to understand the University of Virginia as a landscape of slavery. That important work, combined with the events of August 2017, led to Nelson’s co-edited book of essays:Charlottesville 2017: The Legacy of Race and Inequity; and increased focus on outreach into the local community. His first-hand experience with the recent conflicts in Charlottesville combined with his enslaved labor research brings an informed scholarly perspective to global racial issues, historical and present, makes Nelson a sought-after speaker in Charlottesville, across the country, and internationally.
