This presentation will provide an overview of British, Dutch, French, and Portuguese slave trading in the Indian Ocean between 1500-1850. In addition to outlining the general features of this activity, including the number of slaves traded by Europeans during this period, the presentation will argue that the late 18th and early 19th centuries witnessed the development of an increasingly connected movement of slave, convict, and indentured labor within and ultimately beyond the confines of the Indian Ocean basin.
