About this event: 

      In
recent years there have come to light an increasing number of writings
by Thomas Muir of Huntershill (1765-99), notoriously transported to
Botany Bay for sedition in 1793. Among these is Muir’s legal thesis on
the topic of slavery written for admittance to the Faculty of Advocates
in Edinburgh in 1787 and which can be found in the holdings of the
National Library of Scotland. This online talk asks how did Muir view
the legality of slavery and how did his perspective on the topic relate
to his political ideas, more generally?
