Wendy Warren, New England Bound: The Fragmented Archive of Slavery

This is a one time FREE course.

This talk will describe some of the lives of enslaved people in seventeenth-century New England, explaining what chattel slavery looked like in a place without plantations or cash crops. Enslavement took many forms in colonial North America; this lecture will explore what it meant to be enslaved on the periphery of an empire, in the fledgling “Puritan” colonies.

Wendy Warren, assistant professor of history at Princeton University, specializes in the history of colonial North America and the early modern Atlantic World. She is particularly interested in the day-to-day practice of colonization and in the negotiations and conflicts that exist between would-be rulers and the unruly. Her book, New England Bound: Slavery and Colonization in Early America, was a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize and won the Organization of American Historians’ 2017 Merle Curti Social History Prize.
Cosponsored with the Society of Colonial Wars in the State of Illinoisin partnership with the University of Illinois History Department.
