Description

This session interprets visual and verbal primary source material—from manuscript illumination and stained glass to hagiography—related to medieval representations of what we now call human trafficking. The State Department’s latest Trafficking In Persons Report serves as our standard to compare and contrast contemporary examples with medieval forms of unfreedom. Perspectives from scholars and an anti-trafficking nonprofit leader in Michigan are juxtaposed to highlight multiple medieval case studies associated with making human trafficking more visible. -Margaret Hadley
