About Me

I am a PhD student in the Duke University Department of History. My research interests lie in the Anglophone and Francophone Caribbean, with a particular emphasis on women and gender both during slavery and in the post-emancipation era. My dissertation research, supervised by Professor Laurent Dubois, examines motherhood, reproduction, and population politics in emancipation-era and post-emancipation Martinique. I maintain a secondary research interest in gender and incarceration in the nineteenth-century British Caribbean.
