Was there more continuity than change in British-Jamaican relations between 1760 and 1870?

Nathanael Davies

In his article from Teaching History 180, read how Nathanael Davies came to question his earlier approach of focusing on the causation of ‘abolition’ and ‘emancipation’ and, instead, allowed scholarship, sources and his own students’ meaning-making to guide him to a different, and much more profound, analytic focus. He explains why a change–continuity angle emerged as more meaningful and sets out why and how he situated the events in a longer-time scale and much broader historical context.
