      EVENT DETAILS
      What Do We Really Know About Robert Burns and Slavery?

      Infamously, Robert Burns intended at one point to ‘work’ on the slave plantations in the West Indies. What can we say about this incident in his biography, and how did slavery feature in his work? This talk also looks at what contemporary Scottish writers have to say about the issue. Presented by Professor Gerard Carruthers.
