This talk will examine mass enslavement as an epistemic phenomenon, with a particular emphasis on slavery’s imprint on the thought-worlds of the ancient Mediterranean. It will attend to the interface of slave systems and slaving practices with ancient epistemologies, as part of a bid to place the facts of enslavement squarely at the center of how we tell the intellectual history of the Greco-Roman world.
