The talk will look at the lives of three late 18th/early 19th century women—Sanitte, Adélaide

Métayer/Durand, and Eulalie Oliveau—who were victims of enslavement or

attempted enslavement in the Gulf South. It will also reflect on the narrative device of “three women's lives”—used by Anne Scott in her 1979 piece “Self-Portraits: Three Women,” and again by Natalie Zemon Davis in 1995 in the book Women on the Margins.
