Its shoreline stretches for miles, and it is as near to Africa as to the United States — a connection which inevitably attracted nationals of the latter who were interested in perpetuating the slave trade. The slavery tie between the nation that was to become the U. Though over the decades the Dutch had been supplanted by the Portuguese in Brazil, slave traders Toward the Empire of Brazil 19 from North America remained a consistent presence in South America.
Indeed, the busiest year in the history of the trade for Rhode Island slavers was Actually, a federal law in made illegal participation of U. For these laws notwithstanding, it was estimated that thousands of Negroes per year were being brought illegally to North America by the first quarter of the 19th century,24 with Africans being smuggled to these shores from across the Atlantic and points south, e.
Portugal was seen as a relatively weak power that controlled this huge colony and was, therefore, ripe for dislodgement: In , there was an attempted filibustering effort in Brazil, that implicated U. This was occurring as Latin America was plunged into turmoil as nations strained to free themselves from Spanish colonialism. When John Graham, the U. Negroes, often at odds with the government that oppressed them, often were similarly critical of Lisbon. Fleeing Napoleon, the besieged Portuguese monarch fled to Brazil, where in these nations were declared one kingdom; by , he had been recalled to Europe by the outbreak of turmoil in his homeland.
Taking advantage of this disorder and similar revolts erupting in Latin America as a whole, Brazil proclaimed independence in —a development which was not displeasing to some in Washington who sought to weaken the influence of European powers in the hemisphere. This number represents two-thirds of all imports into Brazil during the same time period, with 80 percent arriving from West Central Africa alone. In , R. More than this, their erstwhile patron and frequent rival—London—had its navy mostly in West Africa to monitor slave trade depredations, which meant that East Africa was a wide open back door.
By the s, the U. They in turn used these ships, protected by the United States flag and manned by U. The business is increasing very rapidly. They take the places of horses in this city, as nearly all the burdens, slung upon their poles, are borne to their destination by these oppressed people. The price of these wretched human beings varied, as the markets were, or were not glutted— dollars was the average sum paid for a black woman; for a man.
As a result of British pressure, by , Brazil was being compelled to bar the legal slave trade, and slave dealers saw the time leading up to this year as an opportunity to deluge Rio de Janeiro with Africans. Walsh was disgusted by the state of Brazilian slaves. Their skins, from constant exposure to the weather, had become hard, crusty and Toward the Empire of Brazil 27 seamed, resembling the coarse black covering of some beast, or like that of an elephant.
This is one great cause, that prevents the adoption of machinery. Such perceptions were not foreign to U. A few years later, the U. The destruction of property has been very great. This difficulty in Brazil is probably greater than in any other part of the civilized world. Moreover, there was an undercurrent of tension between U. Chief among these was William Wright of Maryland, scion of a fabulously wealthy merchant house that just happened to have major interests in the slave trade and the crops they produced.
But it will be deeply important to all the other interests of the country that such carrying trade be conducted by a nation capable of defending her merchant vessels. The evil long feared has now commenced; when it is to run we know not. If they were to do so, it would only serve to increase profit opportunities for competitors. The possibility of deploying legions of slave laborers was too precious to resist. Still, the pres era, with its stories of U.

In doing so, these U. Lawrence of the U. An African Squadron, which like its Brazilian counterpart, was supposed to arrest this seamy traffic across the ocean. American court[s] as a result of the activities of the African Squadron. This was in striking contrast to the British Squadron, which between the years and alone seized over seven hundred ships, a number that surpassed the entire merchant marine of many nations. Between and , British naval units seized Bahian ships alone, the vast majority in West African waters. These included swift Baltimore clippers with American crews.
With a crafty ingenuity, these nationals employed devious tactics to smuggle Africans to Brazil. At times U. The first of these vessels lands its cargo of slaves somewhere on the Brazilian coast and then returns to Rio in ballast, while the second vessel enters there direct with the former crew ready for another passage and with the very few articles of commerce afforded by the slave districts in Africa.
Naturalized U. As the leading Washington official, Abel P. Darkness thwarted all efforts at capture; the culprits were fully aware that cruisers would not commence chase after midafternoon. Thus, the remaining sixteen hours belonged to them. The meaning was slaves are ready with canoes on beach: a number of flashes, of which six were counted, indicated the 38 Into Africa number slaves.
There are numerous distant signals for communicating with the offing. Things had gotten so bad that the U. Leighton Wilson, who was posted to Gabon during this time lost hope that this traffic in human beings would ever end. The terrified family scattered, attempting to escape as best they could in the confusion and darkness. The last he saw of his family that night was his grandmother screaming on a large rock on which she had sought refuge as he was being hurried away.
He never saw or heard of the rest of his family again, however. With other captives, he was on the march for several weeks before being taken to the island of Zanzibar. Antonio de Luis da Cunha, on board, as far as your charter party will permit you to do so. Negroes—that were largely the product of a similar process. Such was the fate of another U. This did not kill them, but only choked or strangled them. We had barely time to cover ourselves before a large volley was fired which fortunately did no other damage than to sails and rigging. This mostly fell to the lot of the female slave.
Cases proliferated of U. Clay, U. Anyway, the ship was not engaged in the slave trade and, besides, Portuguese law in Mozambique could not apply to the U. Lisbon was livid about the routine snatching of Africans from Cape Verde by U. Secretary of State to apolo- 48 Into Africa gize. Lisbon remained angry about this. In so many words, Washington replied that this was too bad. The record is mixed: basically there were some conscientious U. Navy men operating within the confines of a fatally flawed policy.
Navy men were not as conscientious as Stoner. A public outcry against their import resulted in a radical drop in the number of slaves brought in by slave vessels. An annual figure of [imports] of 60, at was soon reduced to a few thousands by Slaves were occasionally thrown overboard by slave dealers who wished to escape payment of an importation tax, or who wished to get rid of evidence of illegal slaving.
That year, slave revolts in Martinique, St. It was also contested by the U. This chapter will detail the extensive involvement of U. As the decade wore on, this trafficking in human beings was becoming a big business that was enticing foreign nationals to adopt U. Meanwhile, London vainly sought to stem what seemed to be an inexorable tide. Ships in turn would return to Rio de Janeiro with finished goods, also lumber and candles.
This was a virtuous circle—for some—and a nightmare for others, principally Africans. In , the Massachusetts Senate pressed the U. Congress to adopt more stringent measures against this business, not least since the ships carrying these human cargoes were almost all of U. John C. Between her and us there is a strict identity of interest on almost all subjects, without conflict, or even competition, on scarcely one.
To be sure, his defense of Brazil was mostly on the basis of slavery, more so than the slave trade, but in context this often amounted to a distinction without a difference. Domingo for an example. S, thought the Dixie diplomat, Duff Green. He instructed Secretary of State Abel P. Lewis Cass of the State Department was a Michigander and he too took exception to these multilateral treaties cooked up in London, though his motivation was less sympathy for bondage than concern about sovereignty in the face of the entreaties of a former colonizer,23 or so he suggested.
Meanwhile, U. At that juncture, goods from Richmond exceeded those from New York by a factor of four and actually doubled that from Lisbon. Similarly goods from Richmond far exceeded those from Baltimore and Boston of course, if profits from the illegal slave trade had been factored in along with questionable transfers of vessels, trade with the Northern U. Davis less pleasant if they were ever moved to revolt. This human flood captured the attention of Reverend Pasco G. Hill, who had spent almost two months in Mozambique before arriving in Rio de Janeiro in the early s.
Secretary of State, Abel P. Hundreds of persons were required to construct and prepare a vessel for a voyage to the African coast, including countless numbers of carpenters, chandlers, coopers, sparmakers, and sailmakers. Numerous such transactions occurred. It was in Yankee ships, floated by Yankee capital, commanded by Yankee skippers, sailing forth on their abominable errand with the connivance of bribed Yankee authorities that this work of the devil was carried on. Westwood was of like mind, asserting that the U. No less than about died in the course of about 14 days.
Besides, the U. Navy also had to spend a considerable amount of time defending U. The usual channels of communication having been dishonored: letters having been taken out and others delayed. Navy had the opportunity to keep an eye on slavers,61 which were circling from the Indian Ocean and navigating the Atlantic—or at times traversing the Pacific to reach Brazil.
Naturally, he visited the local slave bazaar to inspect the merchandise. A number of these U. Born in Paris in , he arrived in Manhattan in where he became a sailor, traveling frequently to Cuba and Louisiana, before arriving in Rio as the illegal slave trade was heating up in Besides the American vessels bought by the Spanish and Brazilians, as slave vessels, there are many other American vessels, that are chartered exclusively to bring a full cargo of slave goods from Rio Janeiro [sic] to Cabinda.
But what seemed to particularly grate on the nerves of Captain P. Calhoun in Washington. Yet, there was no unanimity of opinion among U. Certainly, the eminent Henry Wise of Virginia, the tormenter of John Brown, was a stern critic of this business. Image not available Henry Alexander Wise. The illicit slave trade to Brazil did not easily coexist with simple notions of a rapacious Slave South hell-bent on dragging more Africans across the Atlantic into slavery and a pious abolitionist North determined to thwart their schemes.
Such an analysis hardly explains the activities of the Virginian, Henry Wise, during his tenure as a U. Still, he was one of a number of U. Henry A. Wise was no abolitionist—though he was influential, having considered a race for the presidency in Wise was single-minded about what should befall the captured Brown, not least since he was gravely concerned about what signal to slavery his uprising wrought. Historian Don E. After all, there was an analytical distinction between slavery and the slave trade—the latter could in certain instances reduce the value of existing slaveholdings by increasing supply.
Negroes to Brazil, which obviated the need for the illicit slave trade that Wise railed so vehemently against. Wise was not an intimidating physical presence. Politically, besides being a leading Confederate, in the antebellum era he was 70 Wise? He was approved this time and in May sailed southward and did not return until October It turned out that he found just about all the excitement he needed in monitoring and combating the incursion of U.

Thoughtfully, Wise attached a letter from the British Foreign Office asking pointed questions about slavery in the U. Flooding the hemisphere with Africans—particularly when they were growing crops that could be equally grown in the Slave South, e. There was also concern that Brazil could become a second Haiti, only bigger and more dangerous, if the number of Africans there increased—and this could have potentially devastating impact on the long-term viability of the Slave South.
I have exposed their abominable traffic here and have severely shocked its profits if not its conscience. His name is Dow. In public I am told he rebuked his [captain] for engaging in such a charter, and in private told him to do so again, as it was very profitable. States who are my foes of old, and they find more who desire the place I hold, and these united, and their friends, make a pretty formidable host.
North, clouded his view of similarly anti-slaver colleagues, such as George Gordon. North, he thought. Why were they attracted to this inhuman business? Wise thought he knew. Some of our officers having been taken for Englishmen are stoned. Our East India commerce too, passes within a few hundred leagues of the Brazilian coast and would be exposed to the utmost danger in case of a war.
Or, quite possibly, his inflammatory diplomatic messages aside, the opposition to the African Slave Trade by Wise, the slaveowner, could not transcend the rhetorical. He asked me to remain all night as he feared he might be attacked with sudden spasms—which I of course did. He suffered much pain during the night. I have been compelled to resort to copious doses of medicine. When the Wise?
Born in New York City to a wealthy landowning family that had made a small fortune in the African Slave Trade, she married the scion of an equally prominent Rhode Island family that also had profited from this vile business. In , her spouse—William, a lawyer who was to become a U. Senator—accepted a diplomatic post in Brazil where both resided until A few days ago there was another insurrection in preparation up the bay at the foot of the Organ Mountains.
On Christmas day they were to march down to the city, secure both arsenals and murder all the whites. They speak different languages and are in a state of hostility towards each other at home. The blacks of different tribes and interests when at home have been here long enough to feel deeply the oppression and cruelty of the whites towards all of that colour. The computation is 20 black to one white and daily increasing in the same ratio is ships load of these poor wretches are constantly landed on the coast near Rio and marched down to the market.

Wise—and many others who were not necessarily opposed to slavery itself—thought not. Even when thousands of miles away from the U.

It would be greatly to be regretted, if he has taken any step, calculated to have a contrary effect. A riot had taken place among some Americans on shore. Wright clashed with Brazil on financial matters, just as Wise had clashes with this nation about the African Slave Trade—though the two were intertwined. Northeast than slave-owners themselves. Brazil had further reason for nervousness about U.

For 85 86 Crisis many who had never seen this peculiar institution up close, Brazil stirred abolitionist sentiments that contributed to rising national tensions. For others, it reinforced the idea of the normalcy of slavery, thus calcifying existing biases.
And for others—like Gardner and Parker—it stirred imaginative fantasies that reflected a terrible crisis induced by slavery and the African Slave Trade. There is no precise agreement on the number of U. Negroes and Afro-Brazilians—e. Stewart, who hailed from the Northern U. They said the people were terribly alarmed at the great influx of Yankees and that the Emperor had ordered a double guard to be placed for the protection of the city and preservation of order.

But as it is owned by the Portuguese, an ignorant and superstitious people, military discipline not being understood by them, notwithstanding there were a great many forts in and around the harbor, yet an intelligent people understanding the art of war might with very little exertion compel them to surrender. Some regiments are made up of blacks and whites, all colors and all heights.
Their annoyance and the natural prejudice of Americans with any colored race put in official position over them, brought on quite a number of collisions, our boys generally coming out best. If their army is as badly organized as their navy, I should think they would make but a feeble resistance in defending their metropolis against any powerful maritime nation.
These, to one accustomed to civilized life are truly objects of disgust and I am told compose two thirds of the population. John Stone arrived in Rio during the rush westward for gold. Schaeffer was part of the Gold Rush and stopped in Rio in May and was stunned similarly. The president himself was a woolly-headed mulatto, and, not only that, but he was reputed to be the son of a padre; and as the padres are excluded from matrimony by the statutes, his genealogy certainly cannot be of the most honorable character.
Still, some of these U. Those not familiar with this practice were noticeably repulsed and revolted. It made my blood chill within me at the sight. I thought to myself that I should like to have my will of the brute for a short time. I have seen them whip[ped]. His left leg was swollen to nearly the size of his body, and from the knee downward protruded excrescences as large as English walnuts. The skin of the diseased limb appeared rough and scaly and several of the toes had dropped off the foot. Slavery is an awful terrible curse. But language cannot describe the horrors of the slave trade.
It was a dreadful sight. They have a kind of dray which is drawn by Negroes, generally about 5 to a dray, one at the pole, two at the wheels and two to 98 Crisis push behind.

Those of the poorer classes and slaves are thrown into a trench where they are sprinkled with lime, placing one layer on another until the trench is filled. The crowded state of the place of internment [sic] is evident from the numbers of skulls and bones laying about, some still with the flesh adhering to them. I met this morning a very handsome Mozambique girl with a double-pronged collar on; she could not have been over sixteen. In no part of the world can so much ugliness and so few good looks be met.
What can they talk about? She is illiterate and suspected. Women are not allowed to frequent the streets, day or night. Slavers preferred men to women, in any event, then — according to one U.

A lamp was constantly kept burning in this chapel. Similar customs [obtained nationally] and by many of the planters the blacks are trained up rigidly to the performance of these observances. Frederick Douglass frequently evoked the example of Brazil repeatedly to indict U.
This is the case in Turkey, Brazil and Perisa. In Brazil there are more than two million of slaves. Yet some of the highest offices of state are filled by black men. If he can be esteemed as a man by the Portuguese, he can be so esteemed by Anglo-Saxons and Celts. Every merchant here is either directly or indirectly engaged in slave traffic—at which their government winks. I have passed black ladies in silk and jewelry, with male slaves in livery behind them.
I asked several if they would like to return to Africa. Brazil seemed to harden the sentiments of abolitionists and pro-slavery advocates alike, thus hastening the lurch toward Civil War. Slavery in Rio de Janeiro left an indelible impression upon those on their way to California. But their compatriots—particularly Matthew Fontaine Maury of Virginia — had a different view of Brazil; he appreciated this South American nation so much that he thought it would be a good idea to seize some of its territory.
Image not available Matthew Fontaine Maury. He also had designs on the Amazon, including a plan to deport enslaved African-Americans there. A street is named for him in Richmond, an oil portrait of him hangs in the Virginia State Library, a county in Tennessee has been named after him, along with a wing of the Naval Academy at Annapolis and a destroyer, not to mention his prominence at the University of Virginia where his name is inscribed on the frieze of the Rotunda.
House of Representatives of 3 March Yet Matthew Fontaine Maury not only devised a scheme to send U. Negroes to Brazil, but he also exceeded the most anti-union elements among secessionists in his zeal in collaborating with The U. If Brazil could get slaves from the U. As he saw it, the law of supply and demand would facilitate this massive movement southward, just as it had already supposedly played a role in the Negro transfer from the northern to the southern U. He did not believe southern slaveholders would consent to the freedom of their property without being paid and, conveniently, he was of the opinion that the desire of the Brazilians for slaves would meet the desire of a good many of those in the U.
Ultimately, this cleansing of the U. South of Africans would serve to, at least, reduce slavery—and the number of Negroes— in that nation, just as it would increase it in Brazil. Negroes elsewhere was an idea that was not unique to Maury, as this notion was often seen as complementary to emancipation. There was talk in the s about settling U. The prices will stimulate the planters to enlarge their cultivations extensively. They cannot do this without an increase of slaves, and I should not be surprised if the next year saw seventy thousand wool heads taken from the coast.
Yet there is little doubt that there were U. He was not alone. I am informed by the most respectable merchants in The U. Bahia was little different, with U.

The time will come when a treaty of commerce and alliance with Brazil will give us the control over the Gulf of Mexico and its border countries, together with the islands, and the consequence of this will place African Slavery beyond the reach of fanaticism, at home or abroad. These two great Slave Powers now hold more undeveloped territory than any other two governments, and they ought to guard and strengthen their mutual interests by acting together in strict harmony and concert.
The Brazilian Foreign Ministry paid close attention to these plots— for which it had not been consulted—on its territory. Secretary of the Navy, and could not have been pleased. And if so, when shall an outlet be found for them? In the Valley of the Amazon. States will hasten to arrange. Our government ought to be among the first to take advantage of that opening. Henry Wise had once told John C. States and Brazil are the two elder sisters of North and South America and are in a moral sense responsible for the whole family of states in the New World.
Seeking to outflank a Brazil that was hesitant to open its territory to a nation that some there viewed as piratical, Maury proposed to Graham that the U. Thus, by getting such a right from Bolivia and the other states whose territories are drained by that river and its navigable tributaries, we should The U. History affords no example of any. The valley of the Amazon is the way; in this view, it is the safety-valve of the Union.
It is slave territory and a wilderness. The problem of the age is that of the free navigation of the Amazon and the settlement of the Atlantic slopes of South America. But now, our ocean front is more than double that. The alternative is, shall Amazonia be supplied with this class from the United States or from Africa? In the former case, it will be a transfer of the place of servitude, but the making of no new slaves. To conquer St. Domingo and reduce its inhabitants to slavery. To unite with Brazil. If they could but get a foothold in that rich tropical [Amazon] valley, establish slavery there by arrangement with Brazil, create a commerce between it and the Southern States, direct and institute lines of steamship, slaves could be transported with convenience.
How proportionally small will then the black population be compared to the white! South The U. Certainly, Matthew Maury had a more ramified network of contacts in the Lusophone world than virtually any African-American. And although I trust that your settlement at Macao may not be molested, yet a due supply of Field Howitzers supported by rifled muskets would afford the best security against any attempt on the part of the Chinese. Moreover, such contacts would prove to be useful when he joined with others in the Slave South to secede from the U. I hope the day will come when you and I will play a prominent role together.

Again, double-standards and rank hypocrisy barred such realism, it was thought. This duo were increasingly being viewed as being parochial and selfish, narrowly defending the interests of their slave-exporting state. The illicit slave trade to Brazil had been hampered but the traders themselves had not been run out of business, and the idea of using their infrastructure to bring more enslaved Africans to North America gained traction. Without an increase of African labor in the New World its white population, with that of Europe, must have its independence increased on the British possessions in India, and at greatly enhanced prices, which, it is believed, has been the long cherished desire of the East India Company.

Full Text Available Factors and possible consequences of transatlantic integration are elaborated in the article. An overview of the history of transatlantic cooperation is provided. The author highlights the paramount goal of Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership TTIP - strengthening the positions of its parties in the world economy against the backdrop of global competition.
Stalemate in Doha round of WTO trade negotiations as well as depressed state of the European economy also contributed to transatlantic integration. Results of TTIP econometric modelling are critically assessed. Problems of the EU-US non-tariff liberalization are analyzed. Efficiency of the EU and US labor markets is compared. High unemployment, difficulties of manufacturing including high-tech industries thereof recovery, adverse general business situation in the EU are among such risks.
Various modes of regulatory cooperation and possibility of their adoption in TTIP are considered. Harmonization, erga omnes mutual recognition of regulations, bilateral mutual recognition of regulations, mutual recognition of conformity testing are distinguished. Possible implications of the modes of regulatory cooperation on TTIP members competitiveness, competition with emerging economies and global standard setting are examined.
Conflict of TTIP goals and motivations is revealed. The existence of economic factors of transatlantic integration as well as overestimation of TTIP benefits primarily for the EU economy is concluded.

Full Text Available Purpose: The purpose of this work is to confront the social expectations of the TTIP, and how it effects the so-called "expert knowledge".
Defining a mismatch between the social expectations and expert knowledge may contribute to better understanding of the controversies related to the TTIP. The CGE models have many limiting assumptions. They are, however, a useful tool for exploring the effects of the TTIP, bearing in mind all restrictions and limitations of ex-ante analyses. The NAFTA case study indicates that most ex-ante models tend to overestimate benefits and underestimate disadvantages arising from free trade. The results should be developed upon, for a more detailed, country-specific and time variant understanding of possible sources of social conflicts in the context of the TTIP or FTA implementation.
A practical and original outcome of our work is a well-supported recommendation to make the TTIP realistic effects much more transparent to the public, which should be important to those supporting the TTIP and generally. This context includes both the repeated failures of the Doha Round negotiations as well as the previous attempts and achievements of the European Union and United States to create a transatlantic partnership. The author considers that the current circumstances are more favourable for the successful finalization of the transatlantic partnership but, at the same time, stresses the sensitive issues that may delay or divert the negotiations.
The paper concludes that there are many possible immediate positive consequences on economic growth and creation of jobs of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership as well as a high potential to expand its implementation in North America through NAFTA and in some other countries that have free trade agreements with either the European Union or the United States.

Trans-Atlantic slavery: isotopic evidence for forced migration to Barbados. The question of the ultimate origin of African slaves is one of the most perplexing in the history of trans-Atlantic slavery. Here we present the results of a small, preliminary isotopic study that was conducted in order to determine the geographical origin of 25 enslaved Africans who were buried at the Newton plantation, Barbados, sometime between the late 17th and early 19th century.
In order to gain a more nuanced understanding of the slaves ' origin, we used a combination of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and strontium isotope analyses. Carbon and nitrogen isotope ratios were determined in bone and dentinal collagen; oxygen and strontium isotopes were measured in tooth enamel. Results suggest that the majority of individuals were born on the island, if not the estate itself.
Seven individuals, however, yielded enamel oxygen and strontium ratios that are inconsistent with a Barbadian origin, which strongly suggests that we are dealing with first-generation captives who were brought to the island with the slave trade. This idea is also supported by the fact that their carbon and nitrogen stable isotope values differ markedly between their teeth and bones.
These intra-skeletal shifts reflect major dietary changes that probably coincided with their enslavement and forced migration to Barbados. While it is impossible to determine their exact origins, the results clearly demonstrate that the slaves did not all grow up in the same part of Africa. Instead, the data seem to suggest that they originated from at least three different areas, possibly including the Gold Coast and the Senegambia.
The trope of antropophagy often appears in Middle Passage poems in the context of miscommunication which results in the production of controlling, racist images of blacks and stands as a sign of Euro-American power to create the historical, hierarchical, racial reality of the Atlantic slave trade in its economic and symbolic dimensions.

Acquisition through common slave servus communis. Full Text Available Common slave servus communis is a slave who belongs to two masters. Both masters may entirely dispose with the slave because their joint ownership allows it. However, acquisitions through common slave servus communis is not that clear. Does a slave evenly oblige co-masters or only the master on whose behalf he has acted? Is it possible for a slave to work in the interest of one master and oblige another?
Who does the unconscientious slave correspond to, the third party or a betrayed master? This paper will analyze the opinions of two Roman iurists, which will partly solve doubts that this institute causes. Common slave servus communis is a slave who belongs to two masters. Who does the unconscientious slave correspond to, the third party or a betrayed maste Slave songs: Codes of resistance.
When slaves were forcibly taken from their homes in Africa and brought to North America to live, work, and die in servitude, they brought with them their culture. This included music and dance, which had been used for generations to express their feelings. Africans still use songs to criticize, to protest, for social commentary, and to resist oppression. Slaves used a variety of means to protest and resist their condition; for example, secret meetings, songs which encouraged escape and sabota Transatlantic Online Community of Practice.
Full Text Available Global citizenship and an international orientation are high on the agenda in higher education both in Europe and in the USA. The realization of ambitions in this sphere is often problematic since student and staff exchange is a costly and time consuming affair. In this paper we will explore to what extent the use of technology may facilitate this process and what the added value is.
To that end we will demonstrate how a university in the Netherlands and a university in the United States began a partnership in the area of teacher education. Through the use of technology, faculty and student teachers in the Netherlands and the USA socialize and collaborate on the secure educational platform Myschoolsnetwork.
We will focus on the relationship between the social and the professional, the formal and the informal. We will demonstrate how parts of the US and NL curricula were synchronized and how students on both sides of the Atlantic uploaded lesson plans, webquests and classroom dilemmas. We will discuss why and how we began our partnership and provide detailed instructions on how to achieve success in the development in a transatlantic partnership. In the conclusion plans for the future will be described. Stochastic processes, slaves and supersymmetry.
We consider both the stochastic differential equations SDEs for the process and the associated diffusion equation.
History of slavery in New Jersey - Wikipedia
The influence of the disturbances can be understood by augmenting the original SDE with an equation for slave variables. The evolution of the slave variables describes the behaviour of line elements carried along in the stochastic flow. These line elements, together with the associated surface and volume elements constructed from them, provide the basis of the supersymmetry properties of the theory.
For ease of visualization, and in order to emphasize a helpful electromagnetic analogy, we work in three dimensions. The results are all generalizable to higher dimensions and can be specialized to one and two dimensions. The electromagnetic analogy is a useful starting point for calculating asymptotic results at low temperature that can be compared with direct numerical evaluations.

We also examine the problems that arise in a direct numerical simulation of the stochastic equation together with the slave equations. We pay special attention to the dependence of the slave variable statistics on temperature. We identify in specific models the critical temperature below which the slave variable distribution ceases to have a variance and consider the effect on estimates of susceptibilities.
Master- slave micromanipulator method. A method is disclosed based on precision X-Y stages that are stacked. Attached to arms projecting from each X-Y stage are a set of two axis gimbals. Attached to the gimbals is a rod, which provides motion along the axis of the rod and rotation around its axis. A dual-planar apparatus that provides six degrees of freedom of motion precise to within microns of motion. Precision linear stages along with precision linear motors, encoders, and controls provide a robotics system. The motors can be remotized by incorporating a set of bellows on the motors and can be connected through a computer controller that will allow one to be a master and the other one to be a slave.
Position information from the master can be used to control the slave. Forces of interaction of the slave with its environment can be reflected back to the motor control of the master to provide a sense of force sensed by the slave. Forces import onto the master by the operator can be fed back into the control of the slave to reduce the forces required to move it. Master- slave type manipulator. Remote control manipulator of the master- slave type for carrying out work on the other side of a shield wall.
This appliance allows a Y movement relative displacement, the function of which is to extend the range of the manipulator towards the front and also to facilitate its installation, the lateral rotation or inclination of the slave arm in relation to the master arm, and the Z movement extension through which the length of the slave arm is increased in comparison with that of the master arm. Devices have been developed which transform the linear movements into rotational movements to enable these movements to be transmitted through rotational seal fittings capable of ensuring the safety of the separation between the operator's environment and that in the work area.
Particular improvements have been made to the handles, handle seals, pincer mechanisms, etc [fr. In this article, the authors discuss how children can learn from runaway slave advertisements. The advertisements for runaway slaves that masters placed in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century newspapers are among the documentary sources available to teachers for studying the lives of African-American slaves. Such advertisements often describe a…. Slave hospitals in the antebellum South.
As a contribution to debates on slave health and welfare, this article investigates the variety, functions, and overall significance of infirmaries for the enslaved in the antebellum South. Newspapers, case histories, and surviving institutional records of antebellum Southern infirmaries providing medical treatment for slaves offer a unique opportunity to examine the development of modern American medicine within the "peculiar institution," and to explore a complex site of interactions between the enslaved, physicians, and slave owners.
The world of the medical college hospital in South Carolina and an experimenting clinic in Alabama are reconstructed using newspapers and medical case histories. The Patient Register of the Hotel Dieu and the Admission Book of Touro Infirmary are used to highlight the types of enslaved patients sent to these two New Orleans commercial hospitals and to explore connections between the practice of medicine and the business of slave trading in the city. In addition to providing physicians with a steady income, slave infirmaries were key players in the domestic slave trade , as well as mechanisms for professionalization and the mobilization of medical ideas in the American South.
Slave equations for spin models. We apply an accelerated Langevin algorithm to the simulation of continuous spin models on the lattice. In conjunction with the evolution equation for the spins we use slave equations to compute estimators for the connected correlation functions of the model. In situations for which the symmetry of the model is sufficiently strongly broken by an external field these estimators work well and yield a signal-to-noise ratio for the Green function at large time separations more favourable than that resulting from the standard method.
With the restoration of symmetry, however, the slave equation estimators exhibit an intrinsic instability associated with the growth of a power law tail in the probability distributions for the measured quantities. Once this tail has grown sufficiently strong it results in a divergence of the variance of the estimator which then ceases to be useful for measurement purposes.
The instability of the slave equation method in circumstances of weak symmetry breaking precludes its use in determining the mass gap in non-linear sigma models. Analysis of international negotiations and trade agreements. This study aims to analyze international trade agreements and negotiations. For that purpose, two agreements made by the United States are chosen to be analyzed. Full Text Available Within a sequence of studies on slavery in Brazil in 50 years, we have the original study on the political dimension of this slavery from original documentation Annals and Archives carried forward by Tamis Parron.
In the nineteenth century occurred, according to the author, a politicization of slaveholding issues rather than the development of a policy of slavery. The smuggling of slaves and the defense of slavery are too significant to be set aside by historiography events. To Parron, external aspects such as change in American policy slavery and the position of England clearly interfered in the internal politics of Brazil. However, to the author, what existed was not only the defense of slavery with the clear involvement of the state, but also political game scenes by those who had different opinions.
A Generalized Slave -Particle Method. Two slave -particle methods, namely the slave -rotor and the slave -spin approaches, have been of recent interest in the computational correlated electron community. Both methods solve Hubbard-type models and go beyond the single-particle approximations by describing aspects of correlated electron behavior in a computationally efficient manner.
We present a generalized slave -particle formalism that connects the the two while reproducing the results of each method in the appropriate limit. The framework automatically corrects the problematic small U behavior of the slave -rotor approach while reproducing its behavior in situations where it has been found physically relevant e.

First I will discuss what sentimentalism is and its relation to politics and especially abolitionism in the 19th century. Contemporary German Studies, Bridging the transatlantic divide in privacy. Full Text Available In the context of the US National Security Agency surveillance scandal, the transatlantic privacy divide has come back to the fore.
In the United States, the right to privacy is primarily understood as a right to physical privacy, thus the protection from unwarranted government searches and seizures. In Germany on the other hand, it is also understood as a right to spiritual privacy, thus the right of citizens to develop into autonomous moral agents.
The following article will discuss the different constitutional assumptions that underlie American and German attitudes towards privacy, namely privacy as an aspect of liberty or as an aspect of dignity. As data flows defy jurisdictional boundaries, however, policymakers across the Atlantic are faced with a conundrum: how can German and American privacy cultures be reconciled?

Notes that although the slave narratives were usually intended to serve in the cause of abolition, not all of them were bitter, unrelieved tirades against the institution of slavery, but rather there were frequently moments of relieving laughter.
A master- slave manipulator with electric force transmission and reflection was developed for the first time in the German Federal Republic. The apparatus belongs to the class of N carrying capacity. It is intended mainly for nuclear purposes and especially for use in large hot cells and also for medium and heavy manipulator vehicles.
The most innovations compared with previously known foreign electric master- slave manipulators are two additional possibilities of movement and the electric dead weight compensation. The aparatus belongs to the class of N carrying capacity.

A counterweight system is described for use in a remote control master- slave manipulator. Within the support there is a means of translating linear motion to rotary motion for transfer through the barrier wall and retranslating to linear motion. The conclusion of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership TTIP constitutes a priority and key component of the new external trade policy of the European Union EU and an immediate follow-up to several years of regulatory cooperation between the two global trade powers. In an era of. NPP lifetime philosophy: the transatlantic difference.
Fundamental institutional and cultural differences in the transatlantic nuclear power industries, and in particular those between the Nordic countries and the United States, have driven divergent plant life management strategies -strategies resulting in distinctly different plant performance. Recognition of the linkage between three key components of overall Nuclear Power Plant NPP performance - yearly O and M costs, safety, and effective plant lifetime -is based on different institutional perspectives.
In the Nordic countries, explicit recognition of this linkage has been historically translated into an integrated approach to plant performance. American NPPs, however, have been forced to focus primarily on near term O and M performance and regulatory mandated investment. While Nordic NPPs view capital investment in plant lifetime management and modernization as necessary to avoid declining plant performance and the cost of replacement power, American NPPs exhibit reluctance for such investments due to the difficulty of justifying the associated short-term costs.
The diverging histories of two NPPs of the same vintage and design, one in Sweden and one in the United States, exemplify the potential ramifications of these approaches. The Swedish plant continues to operate with excellent performance indicators, while undertaking a comprehensive and long-term modernization program.
The American facility is likely to be decommissioned due to unsustainable economic performance. The DataTAG transatlantic testbed.

During the first Obama Administration, a new, different debate was opened concerning its relevance. From the divergences over the Iraq War and the scarce expenditures on defense of the European allies, the importance of transatlantic relations has been called into question due to changes in the global balance of power and the rise of emergent powers, the loss of strategic interest by new generations of American leaders and, finally, the economic crisis and the new debate on the decline of Europe.

This applies in particular to the s and 80s, when novel approaches in social and economic history were developed. On the use of law in transatlantic relations: legal dialogues between the EU and US. Law plays a significant role in contemporary transatlantic relations outside of the bilateral context which, from the perspective of EU external relations law, might seem neither conventional nor apparent.
Non-bilateral transatlantic relations increasingly deploy law as a communication tool between. Slaves immersed in a liberal ideology. Paradigm debates have been featured in the nursing literature for over four decades. There are at least two opposing paradigms specific to nursing that have remained central in these debates.
Advocates of the unitary perspective or simultaneity paradigm consider their theories to be more philosophically advanced and contemporary alternatives when compared to the older more traditional ideas characteristic of models they describe as originating from the totality paradigm.
In the context of these debates, I focus on some theoretical positions embedded in the unitary perspective, noting their limitations with respect to integrating the individual and social mandates of nursing; nurses are responsible not only for individual health-related needs, but also for the health of the collective. I explore two hypotheses that may explain the powers of endurance of the unitary perspective.
Paley, who outlines the origins of nurses' ' slave morality', inspires the first hypothesis. The second hypothesis speaks to the location of nursing knowledge development in the context of liberal ideology. In this work, I outline key conceptualizations of the unitary perspective in order to clearly illustrate the limitations of the unitary perspective for nurses' social mandate. Then, I explore how slave morality and liberal ideological assumptions might both work to sustain the unitary perspective. A paradigm for nursing must have utility in addressing both the health-related needs of individuals, and for addressing the health of the collective.
To this end, I advance suggestions in three areas: first, to transform nurses' slave morality to more honest and noble aspirations; second, to examine liberal ideological premises; and third, to end paradigm debate by resituating elements of the unitary perspective to the level of mid-range theory, where it could be most effective for research and practice with specific populations.
