The Center for Slavery and Research in Modern Society at the Federal University of Alagoas (Nesem Ufal) completed 10 years of existence, dedicated to research into the social history of slavery. To celebrate this important milestone, the group held the eighth edition of the Nesem National Meeting in March, which brought together historians from eight institutions representing six Brazilian states.

The meeting, coordinated by Professor Gian Carlo Melo, was attended by more than 100 registrants and exceeded expectations with the quality of the presentations and the presence of renowned institutions in the area. Nesem operates with financial support from the Government of Alagoas, through the State Research Support Foundation (Fapeal), which finances research, equipment and events related to the center.

The importance of Nesem goes beyond academic research, serving as a true talent incubator. Professors and students who participate in the research group have the opportunity to develop dissertations, theses and monographs, acquiring essential knowledge and methodologies for their professional careers.

An example of this is Antonny Félix, a History student at Ufal and undergraduate scientific researcher, who saw Nesem as an opportunity to explore his academic passions and develop his research on slave society. Fapeal has been an important stimulus for researchers, helping to complete the university’s tripod, which involves extension, research and teaching.

Professor Gian Carlo Melo revealed that the group already has new projects underway, including planning the International Meeting of Colonial History in 2028, focusing on theses related to Alagoas. Furthermore, projects are underway on the presence of Africans and their descendants in the state and the implementation of an umbrella project on society and slavery in Alagoas and Pernambuco.
