I am an African diaspora historian interested in the experience of people of African descent throughout the Americas. My own research so far has mostly concerned the era of slavery and slavery, particularly in the 19th century. I am particularly, but not exclusively, interested in intersections and interactions between black populations and systems of slavery in the Caribbean and the United States. I am newly more interested in slavery and public history. I wish I better understood how to use web based and audio visual materials in both my research presentation and teaching. I am about to start a 3-year stint as Director of African & African Diaspora Studies. I have big dreams, but not much money in that position.
