Join us for the first keynote lecture in the Early Modern Global Political Art symposium by scholar Liza Oliver. This talk considers how spectatorial sympathy, a governing principle of eighteenth-century British art and literature, was deployed by opposing sides of the debate on Britain’s slave trade in the decades preceding its abolition.
