Contributed Mapping Project: Mapping the Early Caribbean Slave Narrative

Mapping the Early Caribbean Slave Narrative

Below is a map produced by colab scholar Lindi Nguyen (Northeastern University | Spring 2014), which maps spatial data on authors and publications related to early Caribbean Slave narratives>

Lindi Nguyen: As an alternative way to navigate the Early Caribbean Slave Narrative Exhibit, we can use this map to visualize not only the widespread diaspora that came as a result of slavery, but where these voices came to be heard through narrative publication as well. To locate these narratives and authors on this map means to view slavery’s impact on a global scale. By localizing these texts, we can better understand movement and publication trends prevalent to the Caribbean slave industry during the 18th and 19th century.
