The most ambitious project of its kind, Slavery and Anti-Slavery: A Transnational Archive is a historical archive that embraces the scholarly study of slavery in a comprehensive, conceptual and global way. Once completed, this digital collection will comprise five million pages of documents selected by a renowned board of scholars and organized in four parts:

- Part I: Debates over Slavery and Abolition

- Part II: Slave Trade in the Atlantic World

- Part III: Institution of Slavery

- Part IV: Age of Emancipation

Part I: Debates over Slavery and Abolition

is a scholarly collection of approximately 1.5 million pages of primary source documents shedding light on the abolitionist movement and the conflicts within it, the anti- and pro-slavery arguments of the period, and the debates on the subject of colonization. Assembling a wide variety of materials - monographs, pamphlets, manuscripts, periodicals and other documents - this new digital archive, developed under the guidance of a board of scholars, explores the various components of the debate with a focus on economic, gender, legal, religious, and government issues. By providing access to rare collections, until now only available in microfilm, this digital collection presents new research opportunities to scholars while the combination of types of materials exposes students to different approaches in the research process.

Part II: The Slave Trade in the Atlantic World

continues this ground-breaking series by charting the inception of slavery in Africa and its rise throughout the Atlantic world, with particular focus on the United Kingdom, France, and the United States. This collection features a wide range of materials, from monographs and individual papers to company records, newspapers, and a variety of government documents. More international in scope than Part I, this collection was developed by an international editorial board with scholars specializing in European, African, Latin American/Caribbean, and United States aspects of the slave trade.

Part III: Institution of Slavery

Further expanding the depth of coverage of the topic, Part III: The Institution of Slavery explores in vivid detail the inner workings of slavery from 1492-1888. Through legal documents, plantation records, first-person accounts, newspapers, government records and other primary sources, Part III reveals how enslaved people struggled against the institution. Sourced from the National Archives at Kew, the British Library, the U.S. National Archives and the University of Miami, among others, these rare works explore such topics as slavery as a legal and labor system; the relationship between slavery and religion; freed slaves; the Shong Massacre; the Dememara insurrection; and many others.

Future Series:

- Part IV Age of Emancipation
