Ian Read

Ian Olivo Read - Assistant Professor of Latin American Studies

In January, Stanford University Press published Dr. Ian Read’s book titled, The Hierarchies of Slavery in Santos, 1822-1888.  The book explores moments of opportunity and resistance among slaves in nineteenth-century Santos, a major port city in south-eastern Brazil.  It argues that slavery in Brazil was hierarchical:  slaves’ fleeting chances to form families, work jobs that would not kill or maim, avoid debilitating diseases, or find a (legal or illegal) pathway out of slavery were highly influenced by their demographic background and their owners’ social positions.
