Austin Choi-Fitzpatrick is University Professor, Kroc School of Peace Studies, University of San Diego; Gilder Lehrman Center visiting fellow, April 2022

Austin Choi-Fitzpatrick’s current book project, Bonded, explores the relationship between slavery and freedom and between perpetrator and survivor. Drawing on unprecedented conversations with matched pairs of contemporary bonded laborers and landlords, it asks new questions about how human rights violations and emancipatory struggles are experienced, but also raises provocative and profound questions about the central role of the individual in our thinking about human progress and social change.
