About Me

I am an associate professor in Atlantic History at the University of New Orleans. In my work, I explore the multi-faceted dimensions of slavery, slave trade, and cross-cultural contact in the Dutch Atlantic and Early America with special emphasis on Early New York. I have published on topics ranging from slavery and race in an eighteenth-century Brooklyn Dutch Reformed Church to Dutch diplomacy in precolonial Kongo. I also curated a digital exhibit on slavery in New Netherland for the New Netherland Institute. Currently, I am completing my manuscript on slavery and space in early New York’s Dutch communities, under contract with Cornell University Press.
