Traces of slavery: join the conversation and show your thoughts

On 5 July, four days after Keti Koti, representatives of the Surinamese-Caribbean community, staff and students will discuss the research on slavery at UU, the University’s own part and the contemporary effects of the slavery past. We cordially invite you to be a part of the conversation. 


Joyce Sylvester (State Commission against Discrimination and Racism) will provide an introduction and Migaisa Poeketi (Keti Koti Utrecht) will lead the dialogue. There will also be music, lunch and room to meet each other. The complete programme will soon be available on the Traces of slavery website

We need your help!

If you have conducted research, have a (research) question, or hold any insights related to the topic of slavery or colonialism, we encourage you to share them through a poster. The posters will be displayed during the event, and we will cover the printing costs. Feel free to express your ideas using different formats, such as text, quotes, or collages (Canva is a helpful tool).

  • Format: A3 (297x420 mm) – vertical orientation
  • Submit in PDF format
  • Mail to:
  • Deadline: Sunday, 25 June 2023


To join the event you can register via the link at the bottom of this news article on Traces of slavery. Of course, you're welcome to join the conversation even without a poster! We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
