Farmers, Traders, Slaves, and Princes: Retrieving Lives of Eighteenth Century Inhabitants in and around Colombo, Sri Lanka, by Alicia Schrikker - CMS Seminar Series

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 4:30pm

Virtual Event

In this talk I will present the ongoing research project "Colonialism inside out" a Sri Lankan-Dutch research project, which has been running since 2017.  The project aims at historical life writing, by combing macro-data from 18th century parish and census registers with qualitative data from legal courts, notary offices and church councils. The project brings in view the local farmers, Muslim and chettiyar merchants and Indian ocean exiles and slaves who inhabited Colombo and its surroundings.
