(p.216) 10 Making Museum Narratives of Slavery and Anti-Slavery in Olney
Britain's History and Memory of Transatlantic Slavery

Liverpool University Press

This chapter explores how and why narratives of the abolitionist John Newton evolved within the Cowper and Newton Museum between the centenary of his death in 1907 and the bicentenary in 2007. Using discourse and exhibition analysis, it seeks to understand how changing discourses surrounding the memory of Newton and the wider representation of slavery affected how abolition is narrated in the museum. In doing so, it examines the complex relationship between local and global narratives of abolition and slavery.

Keywords:   John Newton, Olney, Narrative, Local, Global, Slavery, Abolition
