Martyn Hudson

The Slave Ship, Memory and the Origin of Modernity

This path-breaking book uncovers the significance of the memory of the slave ship for modernity as well as its role in the cultural production of modernity. By so doing, it examines methods of ethnography for historical events and experiences and offers a sociology and a history from below of the slave experience. The arguments in this book show the way for using memory studies to undermine contemporary slavery.

Focusing on everyday life in nineteenth-century Britain and its imperial possessions—from preparing tea to cleaning the kitchen, from packing for imperial adventures to arranging home décor—the essays in this collection analyze the idiosyncratic and ideological contours of materiality, thus demonstrating how the use of nitty-gritty elements influenced the ways that tenets of domesticity were established as central to individual happiness, national ...
