Abstract: This chapter will explore some of the pedagogical challenges faced when teaching slavery (both Atlantic and Global) to university history students. It explores the pedagogical justification behind the teaching slavery in a global context as opposed to a more ‘traditional’ approach to transatlantic slavery taking it as a unique case study in isolation. It places the teaching of slavery into the context of the study of other painful pasts such as the study of the holocaust and lynching and discusses some of the challenges that prevent students from developing their knowledge about these topics sensitively and creatively.
