HISTORY

Like all histories, the history of Sudan is controversial and unsettled. Sudan has undergone multiple colonisations from the Turks, the Egyptians and the British and more recently many coups d'etat. This page provides a forum to share research about the history that has led to the formation and growth of the Sudanese Diaspora.

Critique of the Sudanese slave trade (webpage)
This essay, published in a blog, discusses the politics of slavery in Sudan. It takes particular note of the North–South divide and the perceptions of the outside world in trying to interpret the slave trade in Sudan through colonial and post-colonial perspectives. It was written as a response to Mark Leopold's review of materials concerning the same slave trade in the journal 'African Affairs'.
