Mellon Foundation, Social Science Research Council, and the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, and is a member of the Caribbean Philosophical Association Board of Directors. He is presently completing A Political Companion to Frederick Douglass for the University Press of Kentucky.

Lecture Title: Why Marronage Still Matters
Abstract: What is the opposite of freedom? Neil Roberts answers this question with definitive force. Crucial to his investigation is the concept of marronage—a form of slave escape that was an important aspect of Caribbean and Latin American slave systems. Roberts examines the liminal and transitional space of slave escape to develop a theory of freedom as marronage, which contends that freedom is fundamentally located within this space. In this lecture, Roberts will explore how what he calls the “post-Western” concept and practice of marronage—of flight—bears on our world today.
