Yale and Slavery: Historiography of Slavery at Yale

Bibliographic list of source materials on Yale and slavery.

Study of Historiography

This section of the subject guide touches on the critique and study of the work of several historians who taught at Yale University over the last century.  The historiographic study of their works allows for a critical eye to be pointed at how their theories, opinions and biases were formed and how their works have shaped a particular historical period.  In this case - the study of slavery in the American south.  Links from the pull-down menu above will allow users to directly access the content listed in the subject guide.
