I’m Professor of History at the University of Texas at Arlington.

Since studying with Franklin Knight, Robert Forster, Orest Ranum and Jack Greene at Johns Hopkins in the mid-1980s, I’ve been researching and writing about French colonial Saint-Domingue in the eighteenth century. My scholarship focuses on social, cultural, and economic developments in the colony before the Haitian Revolution.

In 2017-18 I’ll be one of 35 fellows at the National Humanities Center in North Carolina, writing a book on Macandal, Saint-Domingue’s legendary poisoner and rebel.
