Art historian Charmaine Nelson, a professor at McGill University in Montreal, is currently at Harvard as the William Lyon Mackenzie King Chair in Canadian studies. Through an exploration of the various forms of human commodification--18th & 19th-century auctions, private and public sales--Professor Nelson offers evidence about the ethnic make-up of British Quebec's enslaved population and the nature of their labors, drawing parallels and distinctions between Canada and other transatlantic sites.
