February 1, 2021: Next Joseph C. Miller Memorial Lecture Series by Mariana Armond Dias Paes, BCDSS and Max Planck Institute for European Legal History, and Paulo Cruz Terra, Capes-Humboldt Research Fellow at the BCDSS and Federal University Fluminense, Brazil.

This lecture deals explicitly with "Punishment, Labor and Law: Perspectives from the Global South". The purpose of this lecture is to give an overview of the Global Labor and Legal History produced in the last years, pointing out that in both areas there is a lack of detailed analyzis of the connections between Brazil and Africa. We will also discuss theoretical and methodological perspectives that would benefit from including Africa in the narrative of Global Labor History and Global Legal History. In this sense, we intend to indicate some possibilities of studies that take into account both Atlantic and global perspectives that privilege the interconnections between geographic areas both in the Americas and in Africa, as well as discuss possible contributions of this perspective to Global Legal and Labor History.
