Cambria Press author and series editor Ana Lucia Araujo (Howard University) was interviewed for a spotlight segment on Latino Americans. In the interview, Dr. Araujo commented on the similarities between her native Brazil and the United States, in particular the histories of slavery in both countries which has resulted in legacies of racism and racial inequality. An expert on slavery, Dr. Araujo’s publications include the highly praised and well-reviewed Public Memory of Slavery: Victims and Perpetrators in the South Atlantic and Paths of the Atlantic Slave Trade: Interactions, Identities, and Images
These books–which are always hits at conferences, especially at Latin American Studies Association (LASA)–have set the standard and paved the way for her series, the Cambria Studies in Slavery: Past and Present, which is an interdisciplinary collection that not only looks at historical work on slavery but also cutting-edge research on modern-day human trafficking and literary works focusing on slavery.
