Assistant Professor of History Peter and Bonnie McCausland Fellow of History, University of South Carolina

I am an Assistant Professor of History at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, and I specialize in the colonial history of the Northeast, with a focus on overlapping networks of slavery in the Dutch and British Atlantic worlds. My book manuscript, under contract with Cornell University Press, entitled Bound by Bondage: Slavery and the Creation of a Northern Gentry, compares the ways that slavery shaped Northeastern culture by examining the social and kinship networks that intertwined enslavers with those they enslaved.
