In Re-visualizing Slavery, historians, heritage specialists, and cultural scientists shed new light on the history of slavery in Asia by centering visual sources--specifically, Dutch paintings, watercolors and drawings from the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries. The traditional image of slavery in Asia is shaped and dominated by terms such as 'mild, ' 'debt, ' and 'household, ' but new historical research that utilizes the versatility, power of expression, and silences of and within visual sources explicitly points to it as violent and harsh in character--comparable to the Atlantic history of slavery.

Nancy Jouwe is a cultural historian and independent researcher, public speaker, writer, and lecturer. Wim Manuhutu is a historian, heritage specialist, and lecturer at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Matthias van Rossum is a historian and senior researcher and Merve Tosun is a historian, both at the International Institute of Social History.
