The Greek Slave Speaks: Feminist Perspectives on a Lost Piece of Scottish Art History

The Greek Slave Speaks: Feminist Perspectives on a Lost Piece of Scottish Art History combines gender and sexualities studies with art history. Working with an art historian at the University of Edinburgh, Dr. Roach is uncovering long-buried Edinburgh-area connections to a famous 19th-century American statue (a version of which is displayed in the UA President’s Mansion) to tell a tale of transatlantic art and slavery that ties together the US and UK from the 19th century to the present.
