CSWS is thrilled to announce the release of our Director Michelle McKinley’s book, Fractional Freedoms: Slavery, Intimacy, and Legal Mobilization in Colonial Lima, 1600-1700 (Cambridge University Press, September 2016)!

The book explores domestic slavery and what Professor McKinley terms “fractional freedoms” in the context of colonial Peru.

Professor McKinley, in addition to running CSWS, is also the Bernard B. Kliks Associate Professor of Law at the University of Oregon School of Law. You can check her out discussing her book on the website for Studies in Legal History, or in the video below:
