Dr. Nelson, Professor of Art History at McGill, is giving the 2019 Moody-Hamilton Lecture in Atlantic World History. She has published on the visual history of slavery, African Canadian art history, and race and representation. In this paper she looks at the precarious status of fugitive slaves and asks whether "refuge" is a valid description of Canada at the time.
