Girton Reflects: Legacies of Enslavement

A series of reflections from the Girton College Legacies of Enslavement Committee.

While a significant route to understanding College's past has been inquiry into some of the sources of wealth through which the institution was able to grow, there is much more to be told. Importantly, Girton's internal history is there to be read alongside the external histories of which it was also a part.

Every month, for 6 months, the committee has addressed diverse aspects of its findings.
A further 6 episodes will take place every other month over 2023-24, the first in November 2023.
