Shumway, Rebecca. "Castle Slaves of the Eighteenth-Century Gold Coast (Ghana)" in Slavery & Abolition: A Journal of Slave and Post-Slave Studies, Volume 35, #1, 2014. <Published online: 12 Jul 2013> Abstract: This article examines the development of the institution known as ‘castle slavery’ on the Gold Coast (West Africa) in the era of the transatlantic slave trade. It places the lived experiences of castle slaves within a comparative Atlantic World context and argues that castle slavery bore significant resemblances to forms of creole elite slavery in the Americas. It also explores the particularly complex roles of female castle slaves in the daily life and operation of European-trading posts in Gold Coast towns.
