An article co-authored by Visiting Assistant Professor of History Rebecca Wall and Erica Ivins '21 appears in Issue No. 5 of the journal Esclavages & Post-Esclavages.

The article, "The Registers of Slave Liberation in Colonial Senegal: Preliminary Analysis of the Evidence from 1894 to 1903," was written with Stanford-based researchers Professor Richard Roberts and Joshua Goodwin.

This article is the first publication from a digital history project on the self-liberation of enslaved Africans during the late-19th and early-20th centuries. The project, jointly directed by researchers at Hamilton College, Stanford University, and the Institut d'Etudes Avancées (Saint-Louis, Senegal), aims to use colonial sources and digital methods to generate insights into the social history and historical agency of enslaved Africans.
